Medium Nessus Plugin ID 118595
SynopsisThe remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
DescriptionDuring key agreement in a TLS handshake using a DH(E) based ciphersuite a malicious server can send a very large prime value to the client. This will cause the client to spend an unreasonably long period of time generating a key for this prime resulting in a hang until the client has finished. This could be exploited in a Denial Of Service attack.(CVE-2018-0732 )
SolutionRun 'yum update openssl' to update your system.
