OpenSSL Plain Text Recovery Attack Vulnerability

Description

The OpenSSL library implementation is vulnerable to a plain text recovery attack by performing timing analysis of the time required to decrypt encrypted data. A detailed report of this issue is available at http://www.isg.rhul.ac.uk/~kp/dtls.pdf. (Ref #36017) This vulnerability can theoretically result in plain text recovery of a web management UI session, leading to possible session hijack and control of the device. This issue affects PAN-OS 4.1.2 and earlier; PAN-OS 4.0.9 and earlier; PAN-OS 3.1.11 and earlier. **Work around:** This issue affects the management interface of the device. Security appliance management best practices dictate that the management interface be isolated and strictly limited only to security administration personnel.
