Fortinet FortiOS < 4.3.13 SSL-VPN TLS MAC Spoofing

This script is Copyright (C) 2015-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote host is affected by a man-in-the-middle spoofing

Description :

The remote host is running a version of FortiOS prior to 4.3.13. It
is, therefore, affected by a man-in-the-middle spoofing vulnerability
due to a flaw in the SSL-VPN feature. The SSL-VPN feature only
validates the first byte of the TLS MAC in finished messages. A
remote, man-in-the-middle attacker can exploit this, via a crafted
MAC field, to spoof encrypted content, potentially resulting in the
disclosure of sensitive information.

Solution :

Upgrade to Fortinet FortiOS 4.3.14 or later.

version contained an unrelated error and was removed from
