Synopsis

The remote host is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.

Description

The remote host has a version of McAfee Firewall Enterprise installed that is affected by an out-of-bounds read error, known as Heartbleed, in the TLS/DTLS implementation due to improper handling of TLS heartbeat extension packets. A remote attacker, using crafted packets, can trigger a buffer over-read, resulting in the disclosure of up to 64KB of process memory, which contains sensitive information such as primary key material, secondary key material, and other protected content.

Solution

Apply 8.3.2 ePatch 14 per the vendor advisory.
