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
SynopsisThe remote web server contains an application that is affected by multiple OpenSSL-related vulnerabilities.
DescriptionAccording 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.
SolutionUpgrade to Splunk Enterprise 5.0.9 / 6.0.5 / 6.1.2 or later as appropriate.
