Description

The remote host is missing an update to openssl announced via advisory DSA 1185-2.

The fix used to correct CVE-2006-2940 introduced code that could lead to the use of uninitialized memory. Such use is likely to cause the application using the openssl library to crash, and has the potential to allow an attacker to cause the execution of arbitrary code.
