How to fix?

Upgrade OpenSSL to version 1.0.201 or higher.

Overview

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 Code. OpenSSL is vulnerable to denial of service (DoS) attacks. These attacks are possible because the ASN1_TYPE_cmp function doesn't correctly perform boolean-type comparisons allowing attacks to trigger invalid read operation and application crash through the use of an X.509 certificates.
