SSL/TLS EXPORT_DHE <= 512-bit Export Cipher Suites Supported (Logjam)

low Nessus Plugin ID 83738
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: 2.2

Synopsis

The remote host supports a set of weak ciphers.

Description

The remote host supports EXPORT_DHE cipher suites with keys less than or equal to 512 bits. Through cryptanalysis, a third party can find the shared secret in a short amount of time.

A man-in-the middle attacker may be able to downgrade the session to use EXPORT_DHE cipher suites. Thus, it is recommended to remove support for weak cipher suites.

Solution

Reconfigure the service to remove support for EXPORT_DHE cipher suites.
