Dear All,

Network traffic encrypted using an RSA-based SSL certificate may be
decrypted if enough SSLv2 handshake data can be collected. Exploitation of
this vulnerability - referred to as DROWN in public reporting - may allow a
remote attacker to obtain the private key of a server supporting SSLv2.
CERT-GH encourages users and administrators to review the attached advisory
for additional information and mitigation details.
