medium Nessus Plugin ID 121252


An application running on the remote web server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

- A denial of service (DoS) vulnerability exists in OpenSSL due to an issue processing very large prime values during TLS handshakes using a DH(E) based ciphersuite. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue to cause the client to stop responding. (CVE-2018-0732)

- The OpenSSL RSA Key generation algorithm is vulnerable to a chache timing side channel attack. An attacker can exploit this to potentially recover the private key.

- The Web Access subcomponent of Oracle Primavera P6 EPPM is affected by a vulnerability which could allow an unauthenticated attacker with HTTP access to compromise the system. Successful exploitation of this vulnerability require user interaction, and could result in unauthorized read/write access to Primavera P6 EPPM data. (CVE-2019-2512)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
