The remote web server is running an instance of OpenSSL that might be affected by a denial of service vulnerability.


OpenSSL versions 1.0.1 earlier than 1.0.1g contain the following vulnerabilities:

- Out-of-bounds read flaw that can be triggered through TLS heartbeat extension packets to disclose up to 64kB of memory containing sensitive information, possibly including secret keys. (CVE-2014-0160)
