HP System Management Homepage < 7.2.5 / 7.4.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities (POODLE)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 85181
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 web server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


According to the web server's banner, the version of HP System Management Homepage (SMH) hosted on the remote web server is prior to 7.2.5 or 7.4.1. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists exists in OpenSSL due to the pretty printing functions leaking information from the stack. A remote attacker can exploit this to disclose sensitive information that is echoed from pretty printing output. (CVE-2014-3508)

- A race condition exists in OpenSSL that is triggered when handling Elliptic Curve (EC) Point Format Extension data in a resumed session. A remote attacker can exploit this to corrupt memory, resulting in a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.

- A flaw exists in OpenSSL related to handling fragmented 'ClientHello' messages that allows a man-in-the-middle attacker to force usage of TLS 1.0 regardless of higher protocol levels being supported by both the server and the client. (CVE-2014-3511)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in OpenSSL in the DTLS SRTP extension parsing code due to improper handling of handshake messages. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted handshake message, to cause a memory leak, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2014-3513)

- A man-in-the-middle (MitM) information disclosure vulnerability, known as POODLE, exists due to the way SSL 3.0 handles padding bytes when decrypting messages encrypted using block ciphers in cipher block chaining (CBC) mode. A MitM attacker can decrypt a selected byte of a cipher text in as few as 256 tries if they are able to force a victim application to repeatedly send the same data over newly created SSL 3.0 connections.

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in OpenSSL due to a failure to properly verify the integrity of session tickets. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a large number of invalid session tickets, to cause a memory leak, resulting in a denial of service condition.

- An error exists in OpenSSL related to the build configuration process and the 'no-ssl3' build option that allows servers and clients to process insecure SSL 3.0 handshake messages. (CVE-2014-3568)

- A NULL pointer dereference flaw exists in OpenSSL that is triggered when an SRP ciphersuite is specified without being properly negotiated with the client. A remote attacker controlling a malicious server can exploit this to crash an OpenSSL client. (CVE-2014-3569)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists due to a buffer overflow condition in the Single Sign On (SSO) module. A remote attacker, using a long parameter, can exploit this to execute arbitrary code in the context of SYSTEM. (CVE-2015-2133)

Note that these vulnerabilities only affect instances of SMH running on Windows and Linux hosts.


Upgrade to HP System Management Homepage (SMH) 7.2.5 / 7.4.1 or later.
