OpenSSL 1.0.1 < 1.0.1s Multiple Vulnerabilities (DROWN)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 89081
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 1.0.1 prior to 1.0.1s. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A key disclosure vulnerability exists due to improper handling of cache-bank conflicts on the Intel Sandy-bridge microarchitecture. An attacker can exploit this to gain access to RSA key information.
(CVE-2016-0702)

- A double-free error exists due to improper validation of user-supplied input when parsing malformed DSA private keys. A remote attacker can exploit this to corrupt memory, resulting in a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-0705)

- A NULL pointer dereference flaw exists in the BN_hex2bn() and BN_dec2bn() functions. A remote attacker can exploit this to trigger a heap corruption, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-0797)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists due to improper handling of invalid usernames. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted username, to leak 300 bytes of memory per connection, exhausting available memory resources. (CVE-2016-0798)

- Multiple memory corruption issues exist that allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-0799)

- A flaw exists that allows a cross-protocol Bleichenbacher padding oracle attack known as DROWN (Decrypting RSA with Obsolete and Weakened eNcryption).
This vulnerability exists due to a flaw in the Secure Sockets Layer Version 2 (SSLv2) implementation, and it allows captured TLS traffic to be decrypted. A man-in-the-middle attacker can exploit this to decrypt the TLS connection by utilizing previously captured traffic and weak cryptography along with a series of specially crafted connections to an SSLv2 server that uses the same private key. (CVE-2016-0800)

Solution

Upgrade to OpenSSL version 1.0.1s or later.
