Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:161 (openssl).

Daniel Bleichenbacher recently described an attack on PKCS #1 v1.5
signatures where an RSA key with a small exponent used could be
vulnerable to forgery of a PKCS #1 v1.5 signature signed by that
key.
Any software using OpenSSL to verify X.509 certificates is potentially
vulnerable to this issue, as well as any other use of PKCS #1 v1.5,
including software uses OpenSSL for SSL or TLS.
Updated packages are patched to address this issue.
