Description

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2006:058 (openssl).

Several security problems were found and fixed in the OpenSSL cryptographic library.

CVE-2006-3738/VU#547300: A Google security audit found a buffer overflow condition within the SSL_get_shared_ciphers() function which has been fixed.

CVE-2006-4343/VU#386964: The above Google security audit also found that the OpenSSL SSLv2 client code fails to properly check for NULL which could lead to a server program using openssl to crash.

CVE-2006-2937: Fix mishandling of an error condition in parsing of certain invalid ASN1 structures, which could result in an infinite loop which consumes system memory.

CVE-2006-2940: Certain types of public key can take disproportionate amounts of time to process. This could be used by an attacker in a denial of service attack to cause the remote side top spend an excessive amount of time in computation.
