OpenSSL 1.1.0 < 1.1.0d Multiple Vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 96874
SynopsisA service running on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionAccording to its banner, the version of OpenSSL running on the remote host is 1.1.0 prior to 1.1.0d. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- A NULL pointer dereference flaw exists within file ssl/statem/statem_clnt.c when handling parameters for the DHE or ECDHE key exchanges. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via specially crafted parameters, to cause a denial of service condition.
- An out-of-bounds read error exists when handling packets using the CHACHA20/POLY1305 or RC4-MD5 ciphers. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via specially crafted truncated packets, to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2017-3731)
- A carry propagating error exists in the x86_64 Montgomery squaring implementation that may cause the BN_mod_exp() function to produce incorrect results. An unauthenticated, remote attacker with sufficient resources can exploit this to obtain sensitive information regarding private keys. Note that this issue is very similar to CVE-2015-3193. Moreover, the attacker would additionally need online access to an unpatched system using the target private key in a scenario with persistent DH parameters and a private key that is shared between multiple clients. For example, this can occur by default in OpenSSL DHE based SSL/TLS cipher suites. (CVE-2017-3732)
SolutionUpgrade to OpenSSL version 1.1.0d or later.
