ERROR:- OpenSSL ‘ChangeCipherSpec’ MiTM Vulnerability

From a PCI scan, this error.

Answer: Your scanning provider is apparently relying on the version information in the banner to determine vulnerability. Redhat frequently backports fixes into previous versions of applications which is the case with your version of OpenSSL (openssl-0.9.8e-27.el5_10.4). This is a false positive. The vulnerability does not affect this server.
