FreeBSD : wolfssl -- multiple issues (9b9a5f6e-1755-11ed-adef-589cfc01894a)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 163920



The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


The version of FreeBSD installed on the remote host is prior to tested version. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the 9b9a5f6e-1755-11ed-adef-589cfc01894a advisory.

- AMD EPYC Processors contain an information disclosure vulnerability in the Secure Encrypted Virtualization with Encrypted State (SEV-ES) and Secure Encrypted Virtualization with Secure Nested Paging (SEV-SNP). A local authenticated attacker could potentially exploit this vulnerability leading to leaking guest data by the malicious hypervisor. (CVE-2020-12966)

- An attacker with access to a malicious hypervisor may be able to infer data values used in a SEV guest on AMD CPUs by monitoring ciphertext values over time. (CVE-2021-46744)

- wolfSSL before 5.4.0 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via DTLS because a check for return-routability can be skipped. (CVE-2022-34293)

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


Update the affected packages.
