OpenSSL 1.0.2 < 1.0.2e Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 87222
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 service is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

According to its banner, the remote host is running a version of OpenSSL 1.0.2 prior to 1.0.2e. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists in the ssl3_get_key_exchange() function in file s3_clnt.c when handling a ServerKeyExchange message for an anonymous DH ciphersuite with the value of 'p' set to 0. A attacker can exploit this, by causing a segmentation fault, to crash an application linked against the library, resulting in a denial of service.
(CVE-2015-1794)

- A carry propagating flaw exists in the x86_64 Montgomery squaring implementation that may cause the BN_mod_exp() function to produce incorrect results. An attacker can exploit this to obtain sensitive information regarding private keys. (CVE-2015-3193)

- A NULL pointer dereference flaw exists in file rsa_ameth.c when handling ASN.1 signatures that use the RSA PSS algorithm but are missing a mask generation function parameter. A remote attacker can exploit this to cause the signature verification routine to crash, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2015-3194)

- A flaw exists in the ASN1_TFLG_COMBINE implementation in file tasn_dec.c related to handling malformed X509_ATTRIBUTE structures. A remote attacker can exploit this to cause a memory leak by triggering a decoding failure in a PKCS#7 or CMS application, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2015-3195)

Solution

Upgrade to OpenSSL version 1.0.2e or later.
