Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server 4.0 < 4.0.25 NSS Signature Verification Vulnerability

This script is Copyright (C) 2015-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote proxy web server is affected by a signature forgery
vulnerability.

Description :

According to its self-reported version, the Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy
Server installed on the remote host is version 4.0 prior to 4.0.25. It
is, therefore, affected by a flaw in the Network Security Services
(NSS) library due to improper parsing of ASN.1 values in an RSA
signature. A man-in-the-middle attacker, using a crafted certificate,
can exploit this to forge RSA signatures, such as SSL certificates.

Note that Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server was formerly known as Sun
Java System Web Proxy Server.
