VMware vCenter Operations Manager Multiple OpenSSL Vulnerabilities (VMSA-2014-0006)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 76360
SynopsisThe remote host has a virtualization appliance installed that is affected by multiple OpenSSL vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of vCenter Operations Manager installed on the remote host is 5.7.x or later and prior to 5.8.2. It is, therefore, affected by the following OpenSSL related vulnerabilities :
- 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.
- 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)
Note that the patch for 5.7.x is still pending at this time.
SolutionUpgrade to vCenter Operations Manager 5.8.2 or later.
