Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2017-3730
DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a NULL
pointer dereference. By sending specially crafted parameters for a DHE or
ECDHE key exchange, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to
cause the application to crash.
CVSS Base Score: 5.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See
https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/121311 for the
current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:L)

CVEID: CVE-2017-3731
DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by
an out-of-bounds read when using a specific cipher. By sending specially
crafted truncated packets, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability
using CHACHA20/POLY1305 to cause the application to crash.
CVSS Base Score: 5.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See
https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/121312 for the
current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:L)

CVEID: CVE-2017-3732
