medium Nessus Plugin ID 82830
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 is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 4.5

Synopsis

The remote Windows host contains a programming platform that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote Windows host has a version of Oracle JRockit installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A security feature bypass vulnerability, known as FREAK (Factoring attack on RSA-EXPORT Keys), exists due to the support of weak EXPORT_RSA cipher suites with keys less than or equal to 512 bits. A man-in-the-middle attacker may be able to downgrade the SSL/TLS connection to use EXPORT_RSA cipher suites which can be factored in a short amount of time, allowing the attacker to intercept and decrypt the traffic. (CVE-2015-0204)

- A flaw exists in the Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) subcomponent due to an implementation error in the RSA signature. A remote attacker can exploit this flaw to disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2015-0478)

- A flaw exists in the JSSE subcomponent due to improper parsing of X.509 certificate options. A remote attacker can exploit this flaw to trigger an application termination, resulting in a denial of service.
(CVE-2015-0488)

Solution

Upgrade to Oracle JRockit version R28.3.6 or later as referenced in the April 2015 Oracle Critical Patch Update advisory.
