OpenSSL < 0.9.8q / 1.0.0c Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Plugin ID 51058
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 is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 6.6


The remote web server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


According to its banner, the remote web server is running a version of OpenSSL older than 0.9.8q or 1.0.0c. Such versions are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- It may be possible to downgrade the ciphersuite to a weaker version by modifying the stored session cache ciphersuite.

- An error exists in the J-PAKE implementation that could lead to successful validation by someone with no knowledge of the shared secret.


Upgrade to OpenSSL 0.9.8q / 1.0.0c or later.
