K21665601:OpenSSL vulnerability CVE-2018-0732

Security Advisory

Original Publication Date: 21 Jul, 2018

Latest   Publication Date: 13 Mar, 2019

Security Advisory Description

During key agreement in a TLS handshake using a DH(E) based ciphersuite a
malicious server can send a very large prime value to the client. This will
cause the client to spend an unreasonably long period of time generating a key
for this prime resulting in a hang until the client has finished. This could be
exploited in a Denial Of Service attack. Fixed in OpenSSL 1.1.0i-dev (Affected
1.1.0-1.1.0h). Fixed in OpenSSL 1.0.2p-dev (Affected 1.0.2-1.0.2o). (


A remote attacker may be able to cause a denial-of-service (DoS) attack.

Security Advisory Status

F5 Product Development has assigned IDs 724680 (BIG-IP), ID 724857 (Enterprise
Manager), ID 724858 (BIG-IQ), and CPF-24923 and CPF-24924 (Traffix SDC) to this
vulnerability. Additionally, BIG-IP iHealth may list Heuristic H21665601 on the
Diagnostics > Identified > Medium page.

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 Fixes introduced in 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.


To mitigate this vulnerability, you should limit connections to SSL/TLS servers
only on trusted networks. To protect vulnerable clients, you can configure the
BIG-IP system to proxy outbound SSL connections. For more information about
proxying outbound SSL connections, refer to the following documents:

  o The Implementing SSL Forward Proxy on a Single BIG-IP System chapter of the
    BIG-IP System: SSL Administration manual
  o The BIG-IP Access Policy Manager: Secure Web Gateway manual
