New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 4.4

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

It was discovered that constructed ASN.1 types with a recursive definition could exceed the stack, potentially leading to a denial of service.

Details can be found in the upstream advisory:
https://www.openssl.org/news/secadv/20180327.txt

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.1t-1+deb7u4.

We recommend that you upgrade your openssl packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
