Cisco Firepower System Software Secure Sockets Layer Policy Bypass Vulnerability

Medium

Advisory ID: cisco-sa-20170802-fpw

First Published: 2017 August 2 16:00  GMT

Version 1.0: Final

Workarounds: No workarounds available

Cisco Bug IDs: CSCve12652

CVSS Score: Base 5.3, Temporal 5.3
CVE-2017-6766
CWE-310

Summary

A vulnerability in the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Decryption and Inspection
feature of Cisco Firepower System Software could allow an unauthenticated,
remote attacker to bypass the SSL policy for decrypting and inspecting
traffic on an affected system.

The vulnerability is due to unexpected interaction with Known Key and Decrypt
and Resign configuration settings of SSL policies when the affected software
receives unexpected SSL packet headers. An attacker could exploit this
vulnerability by sending a crafted SSL packet through an affected device
in a valid SSL session. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to
bypass the SSL decryption and inspection policy for the affected system,
which could allow traffic to flow through the system without being inspected.

There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.
