OpenSSL 0.9.8 < 0.9.8u / 1.0.0 < 1.0.0h Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 6400
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 affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

OpenSSL versions earlier than 0.9.8u and 1.0.0h are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A NULL pointer dereference flaw exists in mime_param_cmp. A specially crafted S/MIME input header could cause an application to crash during S/MIME message verification or decryption. (CVE-2012-1165)

- A weakness in the OpenSSL CMS and PKCS 7 code can be exploited using Bleichenbacher's attack on PKCS 1 v1.5 RSA padding. Note that only users of CMS, PKCS 7, or S/MIME decryption operations are affected.

Solution

Upgrade to OpenSSL 0.9.8u, 1.0.0h, or later.
