OpenSSL 1.0.2 < 1.0.2d Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 84637
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

According to its banner, the remote host is running a version of OpenSSL 1.0.2 prior to 1.0.2d. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A certificate validation bypass vulnerability exists due to a flaw in the X509_verify_cert() function in x509_vfy.c that is triggered when locating alternate certificate chains when the first attempt to build such a chain fails. A remote attacker can exploit this, by using a valid leaf certificate as a certificate authority (CA), to issue invalid certificates that will bypass authentication. (CVE-2015-1793)

- A race condition exists in s3_clnt.c that is triggered when PSK identity hints are incorrectly updated in the parent SSL_CTX structure when they are received by a multi-threaded client. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted ServerKeyExchange message, to cause a double-free memory error, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2015-3196)

Solution

Upgrade to OpenSSL version 1.0.2d or later.
