Running Splunk Enterprise Version: 7.2.0 Build: 8c86330ac18 on Windows Server 2012R2.

Ran Nessus Professional Version 8.0.1 (#155) WINDOWS scan and received this low risk finding:

     OpenSSL AES-NI Padding Oracle MitM Information Disclosure
     "It was possible to obtain sensitive information from the remote host
     with TLS-enabled services."    
    "The remote host is affected by a man-in-the-middle (MitM) information
     disclosure vulnerability due to an error in the implementation of
     ciphersuites that use AES in CBC mode with HMAC-SHA1 or HMAC-SHA256.
     The implementation is specially written to use the AES acceleration
     available in x86/amd64 processors (AES-NI). The error messages
     returned by the server allow allow a man-in-the-middle attacker to
     conduct a padding oracle attack, resulting in the ability to decrypt
     network traffic."  
     Upgrade to OpenSSL version 1.0.1t / 1.0.2h or later.

Checked OpenSSL version like this:

      E:\Splunk\bin>splunk cmd openssl version
      OpenSSL 1.0.2o-fips  27 Mar 2018

If I'm already using OpenSSL 1.0.2o-fips why is the vulnerability still there?
