Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client < 3.1.13015.0 / 4.2.x < 4.2.1035.0 Multiple OpenSSL Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 88100


The remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client installed on the remote host is a version prior to 3.1.13015.0 or 4.2.x prior to 4.2.1035.0.
It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the bundled version of OpenSSL :

- 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)

- A race condition exists in s3_clnt.c that is triggered when PSK identity hints are incorrectly updated in the parent SSL_CTX structure when they are received by a multi-threaded client. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted ServerKeyExchange message, to cause a double-free memory error, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2015-3196)

- 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.


Upgrade to Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client version 3.1.13015.0 / 4.2.1035.0 or later.
