The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200902-02 (OpenSSL: Certificate validation error)
The Google Security Team reported that several functions incorrectly check the result after calling the EVP_VerifyFinal() function, allowing a malformed signature to be treated as a good signature rather than as an error. This issue affects the signature checks on DSA and ECDSA keys used with SSL/TLS. Impact
A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability and spoof arbitrary names to conduct Man-In-The-Middle attacks and intercept sensitive information. Workaround
There is no known workaround at this time.
All OpenSSL users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/openssl-0.9.8j"
