stunnel < 5.01 OpenSSL Heartbeat Information Disclosure (Heartbleed)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 73500
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 Windows host contains a program that is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.

Description

The version of stunnel installed on the remote host is prior to version 5.01. It is, therefore, affected by an information disclosure vulnerability in the bundled OpenSSL DLLs. A remote attacker can read the contents of up to 64KB of server memory, potentially exposing passwords, private keys, and other sensitive data.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade to stunnel version 5.01 or later.
