OpenSSL < 0.9.8q / 1.0.0c Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5720
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

Versions of OpenSSL earlier than 0.9.8q and 1.0.0c are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- It may be possible to downgrade the ciphersuite to a weaker version by modifying the stored session cache cipher suite.

- An error exists in the J-PAKE implementation which could lead to successful validation by someone with no knowledge of the shared secret.

Solution

Upgrade to OpenSSL 0.9.8q, 1.0.0c, or later.
