The remote device is affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities.


According to its self-reported version number, the Blue Coat ProxyAV firmware installed on the remote device is 3.5.x prior to It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities in the bundled version of OpenSSL :

- A NULL pointer dereference flaw exists in file rsa_ameth.c due to improper handling of ASN.1 signatures that are missing the PSS parameter. A remote attacker can exploit this to cause the signature verification routine to crash, resulting in a denial of service condition. (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)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to Blue Coat ProxyAV version or later.
