OpenSSL SSL_OP_NETSCAPE_REUSE_CIPHER_CHANGE_BUG Ciphersuite Disabled Cipher Issue

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host allows the resumption of SSL sessions with a disabled
cipher.

Description :

The version of OpenSSL on the remote host has been shown to allow the
use of disabled ciphers when resuming a session. This means that an
attacker that sees (e.g. by sniffing) the start of an SSL connection
can manipulate the OpenSSL session cache to cause subsequent
resumptions of that session to use a disabled cipher chosen by the
attacker.

Solution :

Upgrade to OpenSSL 0.9.8j or later.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.3
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)
CVSS Temporal Score : 3.2
(CVSS2#E:U/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : false
