How to fix?

Upgrade OpenSSL to version 1.0.209 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 Read. OpenSSL is vulnerable to denial of service (DoS) attacks. A malicious user can create a malicious time-stamp file that is mishandled by the system to cause out of bound reads which can lead to the system crashing.
