Tenable SecurityCenter OpenSSL 1.0.2 < 1.0.2k Multiple Vulnerabilities (TNS-2017-04)

Synopsis :

The Tenable SecurityCenter application on the remote host contains an
OpenSSL library that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The Tenable SecurityCenter application installed on the remote host
is missing a security patch. It is, therefore, affected by multiple
vulnerabilities in the bundled version of OpenSSL :

- A carry propagation error exists in the
Broadwell-specific Montgomery multiplication procedure
when handling input lengths divisible by but longer than
256 bits. This can result in transient authentication
and key negotiation failures or reproducible erroneous
outcomes of public-key operations with specially crafted
input. A man-in-the-middle attacker can possibly exploit
this issue to compromise ECDH key negotiations that
utilize Brainpool P-512 curves. (CVE-2016-7055)

- An out-of-bounds read error exists when handling packets
using the CHACHA20/POLY1305 or RC4-MD5 ciphers. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via
specially crafted truncated packets, to cause a denial
of service condition. (CVE-2017-3731)

- A carry propagating error exists in the x86_64
Montgomery squaring implementation that may cause the
BN_mod_exp() function to produce incorrect results. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker with sufficient
resources can exploit this to obtain sensitive
information regarding private keys. Note that this issue
is very similar to CVE-2015-3193. Moreover, the attacker
would additionally need online access to an unpatched
system using the target private key in a scenario with
persistent DH parameters and a private key that is
shared between multiple clients. For example, this can
occur by default in OpenSSL DHE based SSL/TLS cipher
suites. (CVE-2017-3732)
