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

A clustered file system on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

A version of IBM General Parallel File System (GPFS) 3.5.x prior to 3.5.0.21 is installed on the remote Windows host. It is, therefore, affected by the following OpenSSL related vulnerabilities :

- An error exists related to DTLS SRTP extension handling and specially crafted handshake messages that can allow denial of service attacks via memory leaks.
(CVE-2014-3513)

- An error exists related to the way SSL 3.0 handles padding bytes when decrypting messages encrypted using block ciphers in cipher block chaining (CBC) mode.
Man-in-the-middle attackers can decrypt a selected byte of a cipher text in as few as 256 tries if they are able to force a victim application to repeatedly send the same data over newly created SSL 3.0 connections. This is also known as the 'POODLE' issue. (CVE-2014-3566)

- An error exists related to session ticket handling that can allow denial of service attacks via memory leaks.
(CVE-2014-3567)

- An error exists related to the build configuration process and the 'no-ssl3' build option that allows servers and clients to process insecure SSL 3.0 handshake messages. (CVE-2014-3568)

Solution

Upgrade to GPFS 3.5.0.21 or later.

If GPFS multiclustering is configured on Windows nodes, consult the vendor advisory for detailed instructions.
