medium Nessus Plugin ID 177529

Synopsis

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates for openssl.

Description

The remote Redhat Enterprise Linux 9 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the RHSA-2023:3722 advisory.

- openssl: Denial of service by excessive resource usage in verifying X509 policy constraints (CVE-2023-0464)

- openssl: Invalid certificate policies in leaf certificates are silently ignored (CVE-2023-0465)

- openssl: Certificate policy check not enabled (CVE-2023-0466)
