How to fix?

Upgrade OpenSSL to version 1.0.200 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 Resource Management Errors. OpenSSL is vulnerable to denial of service (DoS) attacks. A malicious user can pass an unrecognized X.660 OID to the hash function to the system to cause an infinite loop that can cause the system to crash.
