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: 4.4
SynopsisThe remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
DescriptionA memory leak flaw was found in the way OpenSSL handled TLS status request extension data during session renegotiation. A remote attacker could cause a TLS server using OpenSSL to consume an excessive amount of memory and, possibly, exit unexpectedly after exhausting all available memory, if it enabled OCSP stapling support.
The OpenSSL Security Advisory [22 Sep 2016] refers to additional CVEs.
CVE-2016-6305 does not affect OpenSSL 1.0.1. The remaining CVEs listed will be fixed in a later update.
The OpenSSL Security Advisory [26 Sep 2016] refers to two additional CVEs which do not affect OpenSSL 1.0.1.
