Description

According to its banner, the remote server is running a version of OpenSSL that is earlier than 0.9.8l. As such, it may be affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

  • A remote attacker could crash the server by sending malformed ASN.1 data. This flaw only affects some architectures, Win64 and other unspecified platforms. (CVE-2009-0789)

  • A remote attacker could saturate the server by sending a big number of
