DoS (Denial of Service)
This includes vulnerabilities ranging from excessive resource consumption (e.g. causing a system to use a lot of memory) to crashing an application or an entire system.
This covers vulnerabilities where malicious people are able to gain system access and execute arbitrary code with the privileges of a local user.
Exposure of sensitive information
Vulnerabilities where documents or credentials are leaked or can be revealed either locally or from remote.
FreeBSD has issued an update for OpenSSL. This fixes multiple vulnerabilities, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose potentially sensitive information, cause a DoS (Denial of Service), and potentially compromise an application using the library.
Update FreeBSD or apply patches.
