OpenSSL 1.0.0 < 1.0.0h Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 58565


The remote host may be affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


According to its banner, the remote web server is running OpenSSL version 1.0.0 prior to version 1.0.0h. As such, it reportedly is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An error exists in the function 'mime_hdr_cmp' that could allow a NULL pointer to be dereferenced when parsing certain MIME headers. (CVE-2006-7250)

- The fix for CVE-2011-4619 was not complete.

- An error exists in the Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) and PKCS #7 implementation such that data can be decrypted using Million Message Attack (MMA) adaptive chosen cipher text attack. (CVE-2012-0884)

- An error exists in the function 'mime_param_cmp' in the file 'crypto/asn1/asn_mime.c' that can allow a NULL pointer to be dereferenced when handling certain S/MIME content. (CVE-2012-1165)

Note that SSL/TLS applications are not necessarily affected, but those using CMS, PKCS #7 and S/MIME decryption operations are.


Upgrade to OpenSSL 1.0.0h or later.
