FreeBSD : openssl -- crash on handshake (1a802ba9-f444-11e6-9940-b499baebfeaf)

high Nessus Plugin ID 97219


New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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


The OpenSSL project reports :

Severity: High During a renegotiation handshake if the Encrypt-Then-Mac extension is negotiated where it was not in the original handshake (or vice-versa) then this can cause OpenSSL to crash (dependent on ciphersuite). Both clients and servers are affected. This issue does not affect OpenSSL version 1.0.2.


Update the affected package.
