F5 Networks BIG-IP : GnuTLS RSA PKCS signature vulnerability (K17327)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 86187
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 device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description

GnuTLS before 3.1.0 does not verify that the RSA PKCS #1 signature algorithm matches the signature algorithm in the certificate, which allows remote attackers to conduct downgrade attacks via unspecified vectors. (CVE-2015-0282)

Solution

Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution K17327.
