OracleVM 3.3 : openssl (OVMSA-2015-0065) (Logjam)

low Nessus Plugin ID 84004
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 OracleVM host is missing a security update.

Description

The remote OracleVM system is missing necessary patches to address critical security updates :

- fix CVE-2015-4000 - prevent the logjam attack on client
- restrict the DH key size to at least 768 bits (limit will be increased in future)

- drop the AES-GCM restriction of 2^32 operations because the IV is always 96 bits (32 bit fixed field + 64 bit invocation field)

Solution

Update the affected openssl package.
