Medium Nessus Plugin ID 51076
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionIt was discovered that an old bug workaround in the SSL/TLS server code allowed an attacker to modify the stored session cache ciphersuite. This could possibly allow an attacker to downgrade the ciphersuite to a weaker one on subsequent connections. (CVE-2010-4180)
It was discovered that an old bug workaround in the SSL/TLS server code allowed an attacker to modify the stored session cache ciphersuite. An attacker could possibly take advantage of this to force the use of a disabled cipher. This vulnerability only affects the versions of OpenSSL in Ubuntu 6.06 LTS, Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, and Ubuntu 9.10. (CVE-2008-7270).
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
