New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 6.7
SynopsisThe remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
DescriptionA vulnerability was discovered that allows a man-in-the-middle attacker to use a padding oracle attack to decrypt traffic on a connection using an AES CBC cipher with a server supporting AES-NI.
(CVE-2016-2107 , Important)
It was discovered that the ASN.1 parser can misinterpret a large universal tag as a negative value. If an application deserializes and later reserializes untrusted ASN.1 structures containing an ANY field, an attacker may be able to trigger an out-of-bounds write, which can cause potentially exploitable memory corruption. (CVE-2016-2108 , Important)
An overflow bug was discovered in the EVP_EncodeUpdate() function. An attacker could supply very large amounts of input data to overflow a length check, resulting in heap corruption. (CVE-2016-2105 , Low)
An overflow bug was discovered in the EVP_EncryptUpdate() function. An attacker could supply very large amounts of input data to overflow a length check, resulting in heap corruption. (CVE-2016-2106 , Low)
An issue was discovered in the BIO functions, such as d2i_CMS_bio(), where a short invalid encoding in ASN.1 data can cause allocation of large amounts of memory, potentially resulting in a denial of service.
(CVE-2016-2109 , Low)
