CVEID: CVE-2015-0204
DESCRIPTION: A vulnerability in the OpenSSL ssl3_get_key_exchange function could allow a remote attacker to downgrade the security of certain TLS connections. An OpenSSL client accepts the use of an RSA temporary key in a non-export RSA key exchange ciphersuite. This could allow a remote attacker using man-in-the-middle techniques to facilitate brute-force decryption of TLS/SSL traffic between vulnerable clients and servers. This vulnerability is also known as the FREAK attack.

Remediation/Fixes


IBM Notes and Domino - Multiple vulnerabilities in IBM Java 6 SR16FP3 IF1 affect IBM Notes and Domino are also tracked as SPR HANA9W3KAB. Refer to the JVM tabs in the technotes linked below for download links to a single standalone Java patch that addresses these vulnerabilities.

Workarounds and Mitigations

Administrators can help to protect their Domino servers against unauthorized access by strictly limiting the use of Java functions on the server through careful population of the Programmability Restrictions section on the Security tab of the Server document. In particular, IBM recommends prohibiting server access by untrusted code, Java or otherwise.
Likewise, administrators can use Policies to configure Notes client Execution Control Lists to limit such attacks against the Notes client.
