IBM General Parallel File System Multiple Vulnerabilities (Windows) (POODLE)

Synopsis :

A clustered file system on the remote host is affected by multiple
vulnerabilities.

Description :

A version of IBM General Parallel File System (GPFS) 3.5.x prior to
3.5.0.21 is installed on the remote Windows host. It is, therefore,
affected by the following OpenSSL related vulnerabilities :

- An error exists related to DTLS SRTP extension handling
and specially crafted handshake messages that can allow
denial of service attacks via memory leaks.
(CVE-2014-3513)

- An error exists related to the way SSL 3.0 handles
padding bytes when decrypting messages encrypted using
block ciphers in cipher block chaining (CBC) mode.
Man-in-the-middle attackers can decrypt a selected byte
of a cipher text in as few as 256 tries if they are able
to force a victim application to repeatedly send the
same data over newly created SSL 3.0 connections. This
is also known as the 'POODLE' issue. (CVE-2014-3566)

- An error exists related to session ticket handling that
can allow denial of service attacks via memory leaks.
(CVE-2014-3567)

- An error exists related to the build configuration
process and the 'no-ssl3' build option that allows
servers and clients to process insecure SSL 3.0
handshake messages. (CVE-2014-3568)
