Cisco NX-OS OpenSSL Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Plugin ID 88991
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

The remote Cisco device is running a version of NX-OS software that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the bundled OpenSSL library :

- An error exists in the function 'ssl3_read_bytes' that could allow data to be injected into other sessions or allow denial of service attacks. Note this issue is only exploitable if 'SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS' is enabled. (CVE-2010-5298)

- An error exists related to the implementation of the Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) that could allow nonce disclosure via the 'FLUSH+RELOAD' cache side-channel attack. (CVE-2014-0076)

- A buffer overflow error exists related to invalid DTLS fragment handling that could lead to execution of arbitrary code. Note this issue only affects OpenSSL when used as a DTLS client or server. (CVE-2014-0195)

- An error exists in the function 'do_ssl3_write' that could allow a NULL pointer to be dereferenced leading to denial of service attacks. Note this issue is exploitable only if 'SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS' is enabled. (CVE-2014-0198)

- An error exists related to DTLS handshake handling that could lead to denial of service attacks. Note this issue only affects OpenSSL when used as a DTLS client.
(CVE-2014-0221)

- An unspecified error exists that could allow an attacker to cause usage of weak keying material leading to simplified man-in-the-middle attacks.
(CVE-2014-0224)

- An unspecified error exists related to anonymous ECDH ciphersuites that could allow denial of service attacks. Note this issue only affects OpenSSL TLS clients. (CVE-2014-3470)

- An integer underflow condition exists in the EVP_DecodeUpdate() function due to improper validation of base64 encoded input when decoding. This allows a remote attacker, using maliciously crafted base64 data, to cause a segmentation fault or memory corruption, resulting in a denial of service or possibly the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-0292)

Solution

Upgrade to the relevant fixed version referenced in the Cisco advisory.
