Cisco Adaptive Security Appliances Multiple Vulnerabilities in OpenSSL

medium Nessus Plugin ID 76128
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.


The remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The remote Cisco ASA device is running a software version known to be affected by multiple OpenSSL related vulnerabilities :

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

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

Note that Nessus has not checked for the presence of workarounds that may mitigate these vulnerabilities.


Apply the recommended vendor supplied software update or workaround.
