K14363514: OpenSSL vulnerability CVE-2017-3736

Security Advisory

Original Publication Date: Dec 16, 2017
Updated Date: Dec 19, 2017

Security Advisory Description

There is a carry propagating bug in the x86_64 Montgomery squaring procedure in
OpenSSL before 1.0.2m and 1.1.0 before 1.1.0g. No EC algorithms are affected.
Analysis suggests that attacks against RSA and DSA as a result of this defect
would be very difficult to perform and are not believed likely. Attacks against
DH are considered just feasible (although very difficult) because most of the
work necessary to deduce information about a private key may be performed
offline. The amount of resources required for such an attack would be very
significant and likely only accessible to a limited number of attackers. An
attacker would additionally need online access to an unpatched system using the
target private key in a scenario with persistent DH parameters and a private
key that is shared between multiple clients. This only affects processors that
support the BMI1, BMI2 and ADX extensions like Intel Broadwell (5th generation)
and later or AMD Ryzen. (CVE-2017-3736)

Impact

For configurations using iRulesLX, the connection between the iAppsLX
administrative interface and clients is vulnerable to high-complexity attacks
on DH parameters used in the HTTPS session. This vulnerability applies to the
following platforms:

  * BIG-IP I4800, I4600 (C115)
  * BIG-IP I2800, I2600 (C117)
  * BIG-IP I10800, I10600 (C116)
  * BIG-IP I7800, I7600 (C118)

Security Advisory Status

F5 Product Development has assigned ID 697647 and ID 697668 (BIG-IP) to this

Security Advisory Recommended Actions

If you are running a version listed in the Versions known to be vulnerable
column, you can eliminate this vulnerability by upgrading to a version listed
in the Versions known to be not vulnerable column. If the table lists only an
older version than what you are currently running, or does not list a
non-vulnerable version, then no upgrade candidate currently exists.

Mitigation

To mitigate this vulnerability, you can configure clients connecting to the
iAppsLX interface to use EC algorithms.
