F5 Networks BIG-IP : OpenSSL SSL_get_shared_ciphers vulnerability (SOL8106)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 86017
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 device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.


F5 Product Development has determined that the BIG-IP and Enterprise Manager products use a vulnerable version of OpenSSL; however, the vulnerable code is not used in either TMM or in Apache on the BIG-IP system. The vulnerability is considered to be a local vulnerability and cannot be exploited remotely.


Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution SOL8106.
