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
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionThe OpenSSL project reports :
Timing vulnerability in ECDSA signature generation (CVE-2018-0735):
The OpenSSL ECDSA signature algorithm has been shown to be vulnerable to a timing side channel attack. An attacker could use variations in the signing algorithm to recover the private key (Low).
Timing vulnerability in DSA signature generation (CVE-2018-0734) :
Avoid a timing attack that leaks information via a side channel that triggers when a BN is resized. Increasing the size of the BNs prior to doing anything with them suppresses the attack (Low).
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
