New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

It 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.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
