Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS < 5.0.14 / 5.1.x < 5.1.9 / 6.0.x < 6.0.4 OpenSSL MitM

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 78586


The remote host is affected by a man-in-the-middle vulnerability.


The remote host is running a version of Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS prior to 5.0.14 / 5.1.9 / 6.0.4. It is, therefore, affected by a flaw in the included OpenSSL library that can cause the client or server to use weak keying material, which a remote attacker can exploit to conduct a man-in-the-middle attack.


Upgrade to PAN-OS version 5.0.14 / 5.1.9 / 6.0.4 or later.
