How to fix?

Upgrade OpenSSL to version 1.0.111 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 Cryptographic Issues. OpenSSL is vulnerable to access bypass. OpenSSL accepts client authentication with a Diffie-Helman certificate without receiving a CertificateValue message. This allows attacks to gain access without the knowledge of a private key via crafted TLS Handshake Protocol traffic to a server that recognizes a Certification Authority with DH support.
