VMware OVF Tool 3.x < 3.5.2 Multiple OpenSSL Vulnerabilities (VMSA-2014-0006)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 77332
SynopsisThe remote Windows host has an application installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe remote host contains VMware OVF (Open Virtualization Format) Tool 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.
