ESXi 5.5 < Build 1881737 OpenSSL Library Multiple Vulnerabilities (remote check)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 74470

Synopsis

The remote VMware ESXi 5.5 host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote VMware ESXi host is 5.5 prior to build 1881737. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities in the OpenSSL library :

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

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

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

- An unspecified error exists related to anonymous ECDH ciphersuites that could allow denial of service attacks. Note this issue only affects OpenSSL TLS clients. (CVE-2014-3470)

Solution

Apply patch ESXi550-201406001 for ESXi 5.5.
