OpenSSL < 0.9.8u Multiple Vulnerabilities

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host may be affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its banner, the remote web server uses an OpenSSL
version prior to 0.9.8u. As such, it is reportedly affected by
the following vulnerabilities :

- An error exists in the function 'mime_hdr_cmp' that
could allow a NULL pointer to be dereferenced when
parsing certain MIME headers. (CVE-2006-7250)

- The fix for CVE-2011-4619 was not complete.

- An error exists in the Cryptographic Message Syntax
(CMS) and PKCS #7 implementation such that data can
be decrypted using Million Message Attack (MMA)
adaptive chosen cipher text attack. (CVE-2012-0884)

- An error exists in the function 'mime_param_cmp' in the
file 'crypto/asn1/asn_mime.c' that can allow a NULL
pointer to be dereferenced when handling certain S/MIME
content. (CVE-2012-1165)

Note that SSL/TLS applications are not necessarily affected, but
those using CMS, PKCS #7 and S/MIME decryption operations are.
