Published: 2021-08-30 11:33:40
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:P

Summary:
OpenSSL is prone to multiple vulnerabilities.

Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable version is present on the target host.

Technical Details:
The following flaws exist: - CVE-2009-0129: libcrypt-openssl-dsa-perl does not properly check the return value from the OpenSSL DSA_verify and DSA_do_verify functions - CVE-2008-7270: OpenSSL, when SSL_OP_NETSCAPE_REUSE_CIPHER_CHANGE_BUG is enabled, does not prevent modification of the ciphersuite in the session cache - CVE-2008-5077: OpenSSL does not properly check the return value from the EVP_VerifyFinal function

Impact:
- CVE-2009-0129: The flaw might allow remote attackers to bypass validation of the certificate chain via a malformed SSL/TLS signature - CVE-2008-7270: The flaw allows remote attackers to force the use of a disabled cipher via vectors involving sniffing network traffic to discover a session identifier - CVE-2008-5077: The flaw allows remote attackers to bypass validation of the certificate chain via a malformed SSL/TLS signature for DSA and ECDSA keys

Affected Versions:
OpenSSL version prior to 0.9.8j.

Recommendations:
Update to version 0.9.8j.

Detection Type:
Remote Banner

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

Frequently Asked Questions

No, you can scan concurrently as many assets as you want. Please note that you must be aware of the hardware requeriments of the platform to ensure a good performance.

No, you can add as many assest as you want. It doesn't matters if you have millions of assets, we won't charge you for that.

No. The software is completely free. We have no intention to charge you to use the software, in fact - it completely goes against our beliefs and business model.

A vulnerability is defined in the ISO 27002 standard as “A weakness of an asset or group of assets that can be exploited by one or more threats” (International Organization for Standardization, 2005)

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".
