OpenSSL < 0.9.6m / 0.9.7d Multiple Remote DoS

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 12110

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 service is prone to a denial of service attack.

Description

According to its banner, the remote host is using a version of OpenSSL which is older than 0.9.6m / 0.9.7d. There are several bugs in such versions that may allow an attacker to cause a denial of service against the remote host.

Solution

Upgrade to version 0.9.6m / 0.9.7d or newer.
