Description

The version of VMware vCenter Support Assistant installed on the remote host is 5.5.1.x prior to 5.5.1.1. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the bundled OpenSSL library :

  • An error exists in the function 'ssl3_read_bytes' that could allow data to be injected into other sessions or allow denial of service attacks. Note this issue is only exploitable if 'SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS' is enabled. (CVE-2010-5298)

  • A buffer overflow error exists related to invalid DTLS fragment handling that could lead to execution of arbitrary code. Note this issue only affects OpenSSL when used as a DTLS client or server. (CVE-2014-0195)

  • An error exists in the function 'do_ssl3_write' that could allow a NULL pointer to be dereferenced leading to denial of service attacks. Note this issue is exploitable only if 'SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS' is enabled. (CVE-2014-0198)

  • An error exists related to DTLS handshake handling that could lead to denial of service attacks. Note this issue only affects OpenSSL when used as a DTLS client. (CVE-2014-0221)

  • An unspecified error exists that could allow an attacker to cause usage of weak keying material leading to simplified man-in-the-middle attacks. (CVE-2014-0224)

  • An unspecified error exists related to anonymous ECDH cipher suites that could allow denial of service attacks. Note this issue only affects OpenSSL TLS clients. (CVE-2014-3470)
