A vulnerability exists in OpenSSL that may allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service.
OpenSSL contains a vulnerability in the way server name extension data is handled that may result in a denial of service. According to OpenSSL Security Advisory [28-Mar-2008]:
If OpenSSL has been compiled using the non-default TLS server name extensions, a remote attacker could send a carefully crafted packet to a server application using OpenSSL and cause it to crash.
A remote, unauthorized attacker may be able to cause a denial of service.
