New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote caching server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

According to its banner, the version of Apache Traffic Server running on the remote host is 5.1.x prior to 5.1.1. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A man-in-the-middle (MitM) information disclosure vulnerability known as POODLE. The vulnerability is due to the way SSL 3.0 handles padding bytes when decrypting messages encrypted using block ciphers in cipher block chaining (CBC) mode. MitM 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. (CVE-2014-3566)

- A flaw exists in the remap logic which may allow an open relay to be enabled. (CVE-2014-3624)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade to Apache Traffic Server 5.1.1 or later.
