EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : openssl (EulerOS-SA-2017-1029)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 99874
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.
DescriptionAccording to the versions of the openssl packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- An integer underflow leading to an out of bounds read flaw was found in OpenSSL. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to crash a 32-bit TLS/SSL server or client using OpenSSL if it used the RC4-MD5 cipher suite. (CVE-2017-3731)
- A denial of service flaw was found in the way the TLS/SSL protocol defined processing of ALERT packets during a connection handshake. A remote attacker could use this flaw to make a TLS/SSL server consume an excessive amount of CPU and fail to accept connections form other clients. (CVE-2016-8610)
