VMware OVF Tool 3.x < 3.5.2 Multiple OpenSSL Vulnerabilities (VMSA-2014-0006) (Mac OS X)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 77331
SynopsisThe remote Mac OS X host has an application installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of VMware OVF (Open Virtualization Format) Tool installed on the remote Mac OS X host is version 3.x prior to 3.5.2. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the bundled version of OpenSSL :
- An error exists in the 'ssl3_read_bytes' function that permits data to be injected into other sessions or allows denial of service attacks. Note that this issue is exploitable only if SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS is enabled. (CVE-2010-5298)
- An error exists in the 'do_ssl3_write' function that permits a NULL pointer to be dereferenced, which could allow denial of service attacks. Note that this issue is exploitable only if SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS is enabled. (CVE-2014-0198)
- An error exists in the processing of ChangeCipherSpec messages that allows the usage of weak keying material.
This permits simplified man-in-the-middle attacks to be done. (CVE-2014-0224)
- An error exists in the 'dtls1_get_message_fragment' function related to anonymous ECDH cipher suites. This could allow denial of service attacks. Note that this issue only affects OpenSSL TLS clients. (CVE-2014-3470)
SolutionUpgrade to VMware OVF Tool 3.5.2 or later.
