VMware Horizon View Client < 3.0.0 Multiple SSL Vulnerabilities (VMSA-2014-0006) (Mac OS X)

High Nessus Plugin ID 76965

Synopsis

The remote Mac OS X host has a virtual desktop solution that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of VMware Horizon View Client installed on the remote Mac OS X host is a version prior to 3.0.0. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the bundled OpenSSL library :

- 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)

- 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)

Solution

Upgrade to VMware Horizon View Client 3.0.0 or later.
