Kerio Connect 8.2.x < 8.2.4 Heartbeat Information Disclosure (Heartbleed)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 76402
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 mail server is affected by the Heartbleed vulnerability


According to its banner, the remote host is running a version of Kerio Connect (formerly Kerio MailServer) version 8.2.x prior to 8.2.4. It is, therefore, affected by an out-of-bounds read error, known as the 'Heartbleed Bug' in the included OpenSSL version.

This error is related to handling TLS heartbeat extensions that could allow an attacker to obtain sensitive information such as primary key material, secondary key material, and other protected content. Note this affects both client and server modes of operation.

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


Upgrade to Kerio Connect 8.2.4 or later.
