high Nessus Plugin ID 82162
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in OpenSSL, a Secure Sockets Layer toolkit. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following issues :

CVE-2015-0209

It was discovered that a malformed EC private key might result in memory corruption.

CVE-2015-0286

Stephen Henson discovered that the ASN1_TYPE_cmp() function can be crashed, resulting in denial of service.

CVE-2015-0287

Emilia Kaesper discovered a memory corruption in ASN.1 parsing.

CVE-2015-0288

It was discovered that missing input sanitising in the X509_to_X509_REQ() function might result in denial of service.

CVE-2015-0289

Michal Zalewski discovered a NULL pointer dereference in the PKCS#7 parsing code, resulting in denial of service.

CVE-2015-0292

It was discovered that missing input sanitising in base64 decoding might result in memory corruption.

CVE-2015-0293

A malicious client can trigger an OPENSSL_assert (i.e., an abort) in servers that both support SSLv2 and enable export cipher suites by sending a specially crafted SSLv2 CLIENT-MASTER-KEY message.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution
