Security Bulletin: IBM Initiate Master Data Service, IBM InfoSphere Master Data Management Standard and Advanced Editions are affected by vulnerabilities in OpenSSL (CVE-2014-0160, CVE-2014-0076, CVE-2013-4353, CVE-2013-6449)

Security Bulletin


Summary

Security vulnerabilities have been discovered in OpenSSL.

Vulnerability Details

CVE-ID: CVE-2014-0160

DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by an error in the TLS/DTLS heartbeat functionality. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to expose 64k of private memory and retrieve secret keys. An attacker can repeatedly expose additional 64k chunks of memory. This vulnerability can be remotely exploited, authentication is not required and the exploit is not complex. An exploit can only partially affect the confidentially, but not integrity or availability.


CVSS Base Score: 5
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/92322
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)

Warning: We strongly encourage you to take action as soon as possible as potential implications to your environment may be more serious than indicated by the CVSS score.


CVE-ID: CVE-2014-0076


DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL could allow a local attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by an implementation error in ECDSA (Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm). An attacker could exploit this vulnerability using the FLUSH+RELOAD cache side-channel attack to recover ECDSA nonces. This vulnerability can only be exploited locally, authentication is not required and the exploit is not complex. An exploit can only partially affect confidentially, but not integrity or availability.


CVSS Base Score: 2.1
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/91990
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:L/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)


CVE-ID: CVE-2013-4353

DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a NULL pointer dereference when handling malicious S/MIME messages. By sending a specially-crafted TLS handshake, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a connecting client to crash.


CVSS Base Score: 5
CVSS Temporal Score: See
https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/90201
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)

CVE-ID: CVE-2013-6449

DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by an error in the ssl_get_algorithm2 function. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using specially-crafted traffic from a TLS 1.2 client to cause the daemon to crash.


CVSS Base Score: 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See

CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)

If you are using SSL/TLS with the affected components, follow the directions below. If you have SSL/TLS turned off, be sure to apply the patch before you turn this feature on. After applying the fix, additional instructions are needed for CVE-2014-0160

1) Replace your SSL Certificates.

You need to revoke existing SSL certificates and reissue new certificates. You need to be sure not to generate the new certificates using the old private key and create a new private key (ie using "openssl genrsa") and use that new private key to create the new certificate signing request (CSR).

2) Reset User Credentials

Users of network facing applications protected by a vulnerable version of OpenSSL should be forced to reset their passwords and should revoke any authentication or session related cookies set prior to the time OpenSSL was upgraded and force the user to re-authenticate.

Warning: Your environment may require additional fixes for other products, including non-IBM products. Please replace the SSL certificates and reset the user credentials after applying the necessary fixes to your environment.
