IBM General Parallel File System 3.5 < 3.5.0.17 Multiple OpenSSL Vulnerabilities (Heartbleed)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 74104
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

A clustered file system on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities related to OpenSSL.

Description

A version of IBM General Parallel File System (GPFS) prior to 3.5.0.17 is installed on the remote host. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities related to OpenSSL:

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to a flaw in the OpenSSL library, due to an implementation error in ECDSA (Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm). An attacker could potentially exploit this vulnerability to recover ECDSA nonces. (CVE-2014-0076)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to a flaw in the OpenSSL library, commonly known as the Heartbleed bug. An attacker could potentially exploit this vulnerability repeatedly to read up to 64KB of memory from the device. (CVE-2014-0160)

Solution

Upgrade to 3.5.0.17 or later.
