Cisco Adaptive Security Appliances Multiple Vulnerabilities in OpenSSL

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 76128

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 8.5


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.
