Description

According to its banner, the remote server is running a version of OpenSSL that is earlier than 0.9.7f.

The der_chop script that is shipped with these versions allows a malicious user to overwrite arbitrary files.

Note that this was fixed in the 0.9.6 CVS but no new version was published in the 0.9.6 branch.
