FortiOS: Multiple Vulnerabilities in OpenSSL

Published: 2015-02-11 11:17:13
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:

CVE-2014-0224 may allow an attacker with a privileged network position (man-in-the-middle) to decrypt SSL encrypted communications. CVE-2014-0221 may allow an attacker to crash a DTLS client with an invalid handshake. CVE-2014-0195 can result in a buffer overrun attack by sending invalid DTLS fragments to an OpenSSL DTLS client or server. CVE-2014-0198 and CVE-2010-5298 may allow an attacker to cause a denial of service under certain conditions, when SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS is enabled. CVE-2014-3470 may allow an attacker to trigger a denial of service in SSL clients when anonymous ECDH ciphersuites are enabled. This issue does not affect Fortinet products. CVE-2014-0076 can be used to discover ECDSA nonces on multi-user systems by exploiting timing attacks in CPU L3 caches. This does not apply to Fortinet products.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
