VMware vSphere Replication Multiple OpenSSL Vulnerabilities (VMSA-2014-0006)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 78024
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote host has a virtualization appliance installed that is affected by multiple OpenSSL vulnerabilities.

Description

The VMware vSphere Replication installed on the remote host is version 5.5.x prior to 5.5.1.1, or else it is version 5.6.x. It is, therefore, affected by the following OpenSSL related vulnerabilities :

- 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 that this issue is exploitable only if 'SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS' is enabled. (CVE-2010-5298)

- 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 that this issue is exploitable only if 'SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS' is enabled. (CVE-2014-0198)

- 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 that this issue only affects OpenSSL TLS clients. (CVE-2014-3470)

Solution

Upgrade to vSphere Replication 5.5.1.1 / 5.8 or later.
