Medium Nessus Plugin ID 86426
SynopsisThe remote printer is affected by a security bypass vulnerability known as FREAK.
DescriptionAccording to its firmware version, the remote Lexmark printer is affected by a security feature bypass vulnerability, known as FREAK (Factoring attack on RSA-EXPORT Keys), due to the support of weak EXPORT_RSA cipher suites with keys less than or equal to 512 bits. A man-in-the-middle attacker may be able to downgrade the SSL/TLS connection to use EXPORT_RSA cipher suites which can be factored in a short amount of time, allowing the attacker to intercept and decrypt the traffic.
SolutionUpgrade to a fixed release as referenced in the vendor advisory.
