medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5487
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote web server is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

According to its banner, the remote web server is running a version of OpenSSL older than 0.9.8n. Such versions have the following vulnerabilities :

- Kerberos-enabled versions of OpenSSL do not check the return value when Kerberos configuration files cannot be opened, leading to a crash. (CVE-2010-0433)

- Rejecting a SSL/TLS record with and incorrect version number can lead to a crash. This only affects version 0.9.8m if a 'short' is 1 bits. Otherwise it affects all versions back to and including 0.9.8f. (CVE-2010-0740)

Solution

Upgrade to OpenSSL 0.9.8n or later.
