Oracle Secure Global Desktop Multiple Vulnerabilities (January 2016 CPU) (Logjam)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 88049


The application installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Oracle Secure Global Desktop installed on the remote host is version 4.63 / 4.71 / 5.2 and is missing a security patch from the January 2016 Critical Patch Update (CPU). It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists in the bundled version of Apache HTTP Server in the chunked transfer coding implementation due to a failure to properly parse chunk headers. A remote attacker can exploit this to conduct HTTP request smuggling attacks. (CVE-2015-3183)

- A man-in-the-middle vulnerability, known as Logjam, exists due to a flaw in the SSL/TLS protocol. A remote attacker can exploit this flaw to downgrade connections using ephemeral Diffie-Hellman key exchange to 512-bit export-grade cryptography. (CVE-2015-4000)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the SGD Core subcomponent that allows a remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-0501)


Apply the appropriate patch according to the July 2016 Oracle Critical Patch Update advisory.
