OpenSSL 1.0.1 < 1.0.1e Information Disclosure

Low Nessus Plugin ID 64620

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: 4.2

Synopsis

The remote service may be affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.

Description

According to its banner, the remote web server is running a version of OpenSSL 1.0.1 prior to 1.0.1e. The OpenSSL library is, therefore, reportedly affected by an incomplete fix for CVE-2013-0169.

An error exists related to the SSL/TLS/DTLS protocols, CBC mode encryption and response time. An attacker could obtain plaintext contents of encrypted traffic via timing attacks.

Solution

Upgrade to OpenSSL 1.0.1e or later.
