Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:096 (openssl).

Colin Percival reported a cache timing attack that could be used to allow a
malicious local user to gain portions of cryptographic keys (CVE-2005-0109).
The OpenSSL library has been patched to add a new fixed-window mod_exp
implementation as default for RSA, DSA, and DH private key operations. The
patch was designed to mitigate cache timing and possibly related attacks.
