FreeBSD : openssl -- denial of service (0ca24682-3f03-11e6-b3c8-14dae9d210b8)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 91909

Synopsis

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Mitre reports :

OpenSSL through 1.0.2h incorrectly uses pointer arithmetic for heap-buffer boundary checks, which might allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (integer overflow and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging unexpected malloc behavior, related to s3_srvr.c, ssl_sess.c, and t1_lib.c.

Solution

Update the affected package.
