Vulnerability Details

OpenSSL 1.0.2 and 1.0.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities Sep 16 (Windows)

Published: 2016-09-26 04:40:16
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

Detection Type:
Remote Banner

CVSS Base Vector:

This host is running OpenSSL and is prone to multiple vulnerabilities.

Technical Details:
OpenSSL suffers from the possibility of multiple vulnerabilities due to: 1) Missing message length checks which results in Out of Bounds reads up to 2 bytes beyond the allocated buffer, this leads to Denial of Service. The attack works only if client authentication is enabled. 2) Calling MDC2_Update() can cause an overflow if an attacker is able to supply very large amounts of input data after a previous call to EVP_EncryptUpdate() with a partial block then a length check can overflow resulting in a heap corruption. 3) A malfored SHA512 TLS session ticket resulting in an Out of Bounds read which leads to service crash. 4) Unchecking the return value of BN_div_word() function causing an Out of Bounds write if it is used with an overly large BIGNUM. TLS is not affected. 5) Misusing OBJ_obj2txt() function by the function TS_OBJ_print_bio() will results in Out of Bounds reads when large OIDs are presented. 6) DTLS out-of-order messages handling which enable an attacker to cause a DoS attack through memory exhaustion. 7) A flaw in the DTLS replay attack protection mechanism enabling the attacker to send records for next epochs with a very large sequence number, this causes in dropping all the subsequent legitimate packets and causing a denial of service for a specific DTLS connection.

Successful exploitation could result in Denial of Service.

Affected Versions:
OpenSSL 1.0.2 and 1.0.1.

OpenSSL 1.0.2 users should upgrade to 1.0.2i, OpenSSL 1.0.1 users should upgrade to 1.0.1u

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

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".
