OpenSSL 1.0.2 < 1.0.2a Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium

Synopsis

The remote web server is running an outdated instance of OpenSSL and thus may be missing patches for multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

OpenSSL 1.0.2 prior to 1.0.2a are unpatched for the following vulnerabilities:

- A flaw exists in the 'DTLSv1_listen()' function due to the state being preserved in the SSL object from one invocation to the next. A remote attacker can exploit this, via crafted DTLS traffic, to cause a segmentation fault, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2015-0207)

- A flaw exists in the 'rsa_item_verify()' function due to improper implementation of ASN.1 signature verification. A remote attacker can exploit this, via an ASN.1 signature using the RSA PSS algorithm and invalid parameters, to cause a NULL pointer dereference, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2015-0208)

- A use-after-free condition exists in the 'd2i_ECPrivateKey() function due to improper processing of malformed EC private key files during import. A remote attacker can exploit this to dereference or free already freed memory, resulting in a denial of service or other unspecified impact. (CVE-2015-0209)

- A flaw exists in the 'ssl3_client_hello()' function due to improper validation of a PRNG seed before proceeding with a handshake, resulting in insufficient entropy and predictable output. This allows a man-in-the-middle attacker to defeat cryptographic protection mechanisms via a brute-force attack, resulting in the disclosure of sensitive information. (CVE-2015-0285)

- An invalid read flaw exists in the 'ASN1_TYPE_cmp()' function due to improperly performed boolean-type comparisons. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted X.509 certificate to an endpoint that uses the certificate-verification feature, to cause an invalid read operation, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2015-0286)

- A flaw exists in the 'ASN1_item_ex_d2i()' function due to a failure to reinitialize 'CHOICE' and 'ADB' data structures when reusing a structure in ASN.1 parsing. This allows a remote attacker to cause an invalid write operation and memory corruption, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2015-0287)

- A NULL pointer dereference flaw exists in the 'X509_to_X509_REQ()' function due to improper processing of certificate keys. This allows a remote attacker, via a crafted X.509 certificate, to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2015-0288)

- A NULL pointer dereference flaw exists in the PKCS#7 parsing code due to incorrect handling of missing outer 'ContentInfo'. This allows a remote attacker, using an application that processes arbitrary PKCS#7 data and providing malformed data with ASN.1 encoding, to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2015-0289)

- A flaw exists with the 'multiblock' feature in the 'ssl3_write_bytes()' function due to improper handling of certain non-blocking I/O cases. This allows a remote attacker to cause failed connections or a segmentation fault, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2015-0290)

- A NULL pointer dereference flaw exists when handling clients attempting to renegotiate using an invalid signature algorithm extension. A remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2015-0291)

- A flaw exists in servers that both support SSLv2 and enable export cipher suites due to improper implementation of SSLv2. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted CLIENT-MASTER-KEY message, to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2015-0293)

- A flaw exists in the 'ssl3_get_client_key_exchange()' function when client authentication and an ephemeral Diffie-Hellman ciphersuite are enabled. This allows a remote attacker, via a ClientKeyExchange message with a length of zero, to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2015-1787)

Solution

OpenSSL version 1.0.2a is patched against these vulnerabilities. Apply the vendors patch, or update to this version or later.
