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: 7.4
SynopsisThe remote AIX host is running a vulnerable version of OpenSSL.
DescriptionThe version of OpenSSL running on the remote host is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.
OpenSSL incorrectly handles memory in the TLS heartbeat extension, potentially allowing a remote attacker to read the contents of up to 64KB of server memory, potentially exposing passwords, private keys, and other sensitive data.
SolutionInstall the appropriate interim fix. Additionally, to address this issue you must :
- Replace your SSL certificates by revoking existing certificates and reissuing new certificates, with a new private key generated by 'openssl genrsa'.
- Reset User Credentials Force users to reset their passwords and revoke any existing cookies or authentication prior to the re-authentication.
