Simon Josefsson has reported a security issue in SecureW2, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to disclose certain sensitive information.
The security issue is caused due to the insecure generation of the TLS pre-master secret using the "rand()" function. This may allow the master secret to derived and could lead to the disclosure of subsequent encrypted data.
The security issue has been reported in version 3.0. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Update to version 3.1.2, which uses the CryptGenRandom() API for random number generation.
