F5 Networks BIG-IP : SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS vulnerability (K15329)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 78176

Synopsis

The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description

The do_ssl3_write function in s3_pkt.c in OpenSSL 1.x through 1.0.1g, when SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS is enabled, does not properly manage a buffer pointer during certain recursive calls, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via vectors that trigger an alert condition.
(CVE-2014-0198)

Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution K15329.
