Splunk Enterprise 4.3.x / 5.0.x < 5.0.9 / 6.0.x < 6.0.5 / 6.1.x < 6.1.2 Multiple OpenSSL Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 76528
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 web server contains an application that is affected by multiple OpenSSL-related vulnerabilities.


According to its version number, the Splunk Enterprise hosted on the remote web server is 4.3.x, 5.0.x prior to 5.0.9, 6.0.x prior to 6.0.5, or 6.1.x prior to 6.1.2. It is, therefore, affected by multiple OpenSSL-related vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified error exists that allows an attacker to cause usage of weak keying material, resulting in simplified man-in-the-middle attacks. (CVE-2014-0224)

- An unspecified error exists related to anonymous ECDH cipher suites that allow denial of service attacks. Note that this issue only affects OpenSSL TLS clients.

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


Upgrade to Splunk Enterprise 5.0.9 / 6.0.5 / 6.1.2 or later as appropriate.
