AIX 7.1 TL 3 : sendmail (IV75646) (Logjam)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 85304


The remote AIX host is missing a security patch.


The TLS protocol could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by the failure to properly convey a DHE_EXPORT ciphersuite choice. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability using man-in-the-middle techniques to force a downgrade to 512-bit export-grade cipher. Successful exploitation could allow an attacker to recover the session key as well as modify the contents of the traffic. This vulnerability is commonly referred to as 'Logjam'.
