high Nessus Plugin ID 82994
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.


The remote proxy web server is affected by a signature forgery vulnerability.


According to its self-reported version, the Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server installed on the remote host is version 4.0 prior to 4.0.25. It is, therefore, affected by a flaw in the Network Security Services (NSS) library due to improper parsing of ASN.1 values in an RSA signature. A man-in-the-middle attacker, using a crafted certificate, can exploit this to forge RSA signatures, such as SSL certificates.

Note that Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server was formerly known as Sun Java System Web Proxy Server.


Upgrade to Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server 4.0.25 or later.
