How to fix?

Upgrade OpenSSL to version 1.0.108 or higher.


OpenSSL is a SSL/TLS and Crypto toolkit. Deprecated in Mac OS and gone in iOS, this spec gives your project non-deprecated OpenSSL support.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Out-of-Bounds. OpenSSL is vulnerable to denial of service (DoS) attacks and possible other attacks. These attacks are possible because the asn1_d2i_read_bio function doesn't correctly interpret integer data which can be leveraged to do buffer overflow attacks or cause memory consumption.
