Version Summary:Red Hat has released an additional security advisory and updated packages to address the OpenSSL SSL, TLS, and DTLS plaintext recovery attack vulnerability.
 
 
Description
OpenSSL contains a vulnerability that could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to obtain sensitive information.

The vulnerability is due to improper handling of cryptographic algorithms during the message authentication code (MAC) processing of a ciphertext message. An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit the vulnerability by transmitting crafted session initiation packets to a targeted system. A successful attack could allow the attacker to obtain sensitive information used to secure the communication channels.

OpenSSL has confirmed the vulnerability and released software updates.
 
Warning Indicators
OpenSSL versions 1.0.1c and prior, 1.0.0j and prior, and 0.9.8x and prior are vulnerable.
 
IntelliShield Analysis
The vendor report indicates this vulnerability could be partially mitigated when OpenSSL is used in conjunction with the OpenSSL FIPS Object Module and the FIPS mode of operation is enabled.

VMware has re-released a security advisory at the following link: VMSA-2013-0009
 
Impact
An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit the vulnerability to obtain sensitive cryptographic information used while processing the Cipher Block Chaining (CBC) cipher suites. The attacker could use this information to conduct man-in-the-middle or spoofing attacks.
 
Technical Information
The vulnerability is due to how the CBC cipher suites are used in the SSL, Transport Layer Security (TLS), and Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) protocols. Insufficient cryptographic complexity during the decryption process of MAC in a ciphertext message could allow plaintext recovery timing attacks.

An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit the vulnerability by transmitting brute-forced session requests crafted with payload data to a targeted system. While the MAC codes are decrypting, the attacker could use the timing differences to gain knowledge about the message payload.
 
Safeguards
Administrators are advised to apply the appropriate updates.

Administrators may consider using an alternate product.

Administrators may consider using IP-based access control lists (ACLs) to allow only trusted systems to access the affected systems.
