Security Bulletin


Summary

Multiple vulnerabilities in OpenSSL disclosed on August 6, 2014 by the OpenSSL Project, plus a vulnerability in the V8 JavaScript engine

Vulnerability Details

CVE-ID: CVE-2014-3512
DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by an internal buffer overrun. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using invalid SRP parameters sent from a malicious server or client to cause a denial of service.

CVSS Base Score: 5
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/95158 for more information
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)

CVE-ID: CVE-2014-3509

DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a race condition in the ssl_parse_serverhello_tlsext() code. If a multithreaded client connects to a malicious server using a resumed session, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service.

CVSS Base Score: 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/95159 for more information
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)

CVE-ID: CVE-2014-3506

DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by an error when processing DTLS handshake messages. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to consume an overly large amount of memory.

CVSS Base Score: 5
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/95160 for more information
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)

CVE-ID: CVE-2014-3507

DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL is vulnerable to a denial of service. By sending specially-crafted DTLS packets, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to leak memory and cause a denial of service.

CVSS Base Score: 5
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/95161 for more information
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)

CVE-ID: CVE-2014-3511

DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL could allow a remote attacker to bypass security restrictions, caused by the negotiation of TLS 1.0 instead of higher protocol versions by the OpenSSL SSL/TLS server code when handling a badly fragmented ClientHello message. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability using man-in-the-middle techniques to force a downgrade to TLS 1.0.

CVSS Base Score: 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/95162 for more information
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)

CVE-ID: CVE-2014-3505

DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a double-free error when handling DTLS packets. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause the system to crash.

CVSS Base Score: 5
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/95163 for more information
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)

CVE-ID: CVE-2014-3510

DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a NULL pointer dereference in anonymous ECDH ciphersuites. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using a malicious handshake to cause the client to crash.

CVSS Base Score: 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/95164 for more information
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)

CVE-ID: CVE-2014-3508

DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by an error in OBJ_obj2txt. If applications echo pretty printing output, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to read information from the stack.

CVSS Base Score: 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/95165 for more information
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)

CVE-ID: CVE-2014-5139

DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a NULL pointer dereference when an SRP ciphersuite is specified without being properly negotiated with the client. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause the client to crash.

CVSS Base Score: 5
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/95166 for more information
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)

CVE-ID: CVE-2013-6668

DESCRIPTION: Unspecified error in V8 has an unknown impact and attack vector.

CVSS Base Score: 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/91516 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)
