Pivotal Web Server 5.x < 5.4.1 Multiple OpenSSL Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 77389

Synopsis

The remote web server has an application installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Pivotal Web Server (formerly VMware vFabric Web Server) installed on the remote host is version 5.x prior to 5.4.1. 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)

Note that Nessus did not actually test for these issues, but has instead relied on the version in the server's banner.

Solution

Upgrade to version 5.4.1 / 6.0 or later.

Alternatively, apply the vendor patch and restart the service.
