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's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 3.4
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionThe OpenSSL Team reports :
A weakness in the OpenSSL CMS and PKCS #7 code can be exploited using Bleichenbacher's attack on PKCS #1 v1.5 RSA padding also known as the million message attack (MMA).
Only users of CMS, PKCS #7, or S/MIME decryption operations are affected. A successful attack needs on average 2^20 messages. In practice only automated systems will be affected as humans will not be willing to process this many messages.
SSL/TLS applications are *NOT* affected by this problem since the SSL/TLS code does not use the PKCS#7 or CMS decryption code.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
