stunnel < 5.02 OpenSSL Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 74421
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 multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of stunnel installed on the remote host is prior to version 5.02. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An error exists in the ssl3_read_bytes() function that allows data to be injected into other sessions or allows denial of service attacks. Note this issue is only exploitable if 'SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS' is enabled.
(CVE-2010-5298)

- A buffer overflow error exists related to invalid DTLS fragment handling that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code. Note this issue only affects OpenSSL when used as a DTLS client or server. (CVE-2014-0195)

- An error exists in the do_ssl3_write() function that allows a NULL pointer to be dereferenced, resulting in a denial of service condition. Note this issue is exploitable only if 'SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS' is enabled. (CVE-2014-0198)

- An error exists related to DTLS handshake handling that could lead to denial of service attacks. Note this issue only affects OpenSSL when used as a DTLS client.
(CVE-2014-0221)

- An unspecified error exists that allows an attacker to cause usage of weak keying material, resulting in simplified man-in-the-middle attacks. (CVE-2014-0224)

- An unspecified error exists related to anonymous ECDH ciphersuites that allows an attacker to cause a denial of service condition. Note this issue only affects OpenSSL TLS clients. (CVE-2014-3470)

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

Solution

Upgrade to stunnel version 5.02 or later.
