ESXi 5.5 < Build 1746974 / 5.5 Update 1 < Build 1746018 OpenSSL Library Multiple Vulnerabilities (remote check) (Heartbleed)
High Nessus Plugin ID 73917
SynopsisThe remote VMware ESXi 5.5 host is potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe remote VMware ESXi host is 5.5 prior to build 1746974 or 5.5 Update 1 prior to build 1746018. It is, therefore, potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities in the OpenSSL library :
- An error exists related to the implementation of the Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) that could allow nonce disclosure via the 'FLUSH+RELOAD' cache side-channel attack. (CVE-2014-0076)
- An out-of-bounds read error, known as the 'Heartbleed Bug', exists related to handling TLS heartbeat extensions that could allow an attacker to obtain sensitive information such as primary key material, secondary key material, and other protected content.
SolutionApply patch ESXi550-201404420 for ESXi 5.5 or ESXi550-201404401 for ESXi 5.5 Update 1.
