LibreOffice 4.2.x < 4.2.3 OpenSSL Multiple Vulnerabilities (Heartbleed)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 76510
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.

Synopsis

The remote host contains an application that is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.

Description

A version of LibreOffice 4.2.x prior to 4.2.3 is installed on the remote Windows host. This version of LibreOffice is bundled with a version of OpenSSL affected by multiple 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 'ssl3_take_mac' function in the file 'ssl/s3_both.c' related to handling TLS handshake traffic that could lead to denial of service attacks.
(CVE-2013-4353)

- An error exists in the 'ssl_get_algorithm2' function in the file 'ssl/s3_lib.c' related to handling TLS 1.2 traffic that could lead to denial of service attacks.
(CVE-2013-6449)

- An error exists related to the handling of DTLS retransmission processes that could lead to denial of service attacks. (CVE-2013-6450)

- An out-of-bounds read error, known as the 'Heartbleed Bug', exists 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.
(CVE-2014-0160)

- 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 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 error exists related to DTLS handshake handling that could lead to denial of service attacks. Note this issue only affects OpenSSL when used as a DTLS client.
(CVE-2014-0221)

- 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 cipher suites that could allow denial of service attacks. Note this issue only affects OpenSSL TLS clients. (CVE-2014-3470)

Note that Nessus has not attempted to exploit these issues, but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade to LibreOffice version 4.2.3 or later.
