Juniper NSM < 2012.2R11 Multiple OpenSSL Vulnerabilities (JSA10679) (FREAK)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 82913
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

The remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote host is running a version of NSM (Network and Security Manager) Server that is prior to 2012.2R11. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities related to OpenSSL :

- A NULL pointer dereference flaw exists when the SSLv3 option isn't enabled and an SSLv3 ClientHello is received. This allows a remote attacker, using an unexpected handshake, to crash the daemon, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2014-3569)

- The BIGNUM squaring (BN_sqr) implementation does not properly calculate the square of a BIGNUM value. This allows remote attackers to defeat cryptographic protection mechanisms. (CVE-2014-3570)

- A flaw exists with ECDH handshakes when using an ECDSA certificate without a ServerKeyExchange message. This allows a remote attacker to trigger a loss of forward secrecy from the ciphersuite. (CVE-2014-3572)

- A flaw exists when accepting non-DER variations of certificate signature algorithms and signature encodings due to a lack of enforcement of matches between signed and unsigned portions. A remote attacker, by including crafted data within a certificate's unsigned portion, can bypass fingerprint-based certificate-blacklist protection mechanisms. (CVE-2014-8275)

- 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 when accepting DH certificates for client authentication without the CertificateVerify message.
This allows a remote attacker to authenticate to the service without a private key. (CVE-2015-0205)

Solution

Upgrade to Juniper NSM version 2012.2R11 or later.
