MS KB3009008: Vulnerability in SSL 3.0 Could Allow Information Disclosure (POODLE)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 78447

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.6

Synopsis

The remote host is affected by a remote information disclosure vulnerability.

Description

The remote host is missing one of the workarounds referenced in the Microsoft Security Advisory 3009008.

If the client registry key workaround has not been applied, any client software installed on the remote host (including IE) is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability when using SSL 3.0.

If the server registry key workaround has not been applied, any server software installed on the remote host (including IIS) is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability when using SSL 3.0.

SSL 3.0 uses nondeterministic CBC padding, which allows a man-in-the-middle attacker to decrypt portions of encrypted traffic using a 'padding oracle' attack. This is also known as the 'POODLE' issue.

Solution

Apply the client registry key workaround and the server registry key workaround suggested by Microsoft in the advisory.
