SynopsisThe remote service is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.
DescriptionThe remote host is configured with the TLS heartbeat message feature and appears to be affected by an out-of-bounds read flaw. This flaw could allow a remote attacker to read the contents of up to 64KB of server memory, potentially exposing passwords, private keys, and other sensitive data.
