How to fix?

Upgrade OpenSSL to version 1.0.211 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 Key Management Errors. OpenSSL is vulnerable to information disclosure. The library contains a carry propagation bug that can allow a malicious user to gain information on the curve used for encryption during key negotiation using the Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman (EC-DH) Cipher.
