High Nessus Plugin ID 46801
SynopsisThe remote web server has a SSL-related vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its banner, the remote web server is running a version of OpenSSL older than 0.9.8o / 1.0.0a. Such versions have the following vulnerabilities :
- The mishandling of Cryptographic Message Syntax structures containing an OriginatorInfo element can lead to data being written to invalid memory addresses or memory being freed up twice. (CVE-2010-0742)
- An uninitialized buffer of undefined length is returned when verification recovery fails for RSA keys. This allows an attacker to bypass key checks in applications calling the function EVP_PKEY_verify_recover(). Note this function is not used by OpenSSLcode itself. (CVE-2010-1633)
