The remote host has a virtualization management application installed
that is affected by multiple security vulnerabilities.
The VMware vCenter Server installed on the remote host is version 5.5
prior to Update 2d. It is, therefore, affected by multiple
vulnerabilities in the included OpenSSL library :
- An error exists related to DTLS SRTP extension handling
and specially crafted handshake messages that can allow
denial of service attacks via memory leaks.
- 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.
- 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)
