medium Nessus Plugin ID 118642
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 is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 3.6

Synopsis

The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description

During 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. Fixed in OpenSSL 1.1.0i-dev (Affected 1.1.0-1.1.0h).
Fixed in OpenSSL 1.0.2p-dev (Affected 1.0.2-1.0.2o). (CVE-2018-0732)

Impact

A remote attacker may be able to cause a denial-of-service (DoS) attack.

Solution

Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution K21665601.
