Summary

Security vulnerabilities have been discovered in OpenSSL that were reported on
June 5, 2014 by the OpenSSL Project.

Vulnerability Details

CVE-ID: CVE-2014-0224

DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL is vulnerable to a man-in-the-middle attack, caused by 
the use of weak keying material in SSL/TLS clients and servers. A remote 
attacker could exploit this vulnerability using a specially-crafted handshake
to conduct man-in-the-middle attacks to decrypt and modify traffic.

CVSS Base Score: 5.8

CVSS Temporal Score: See http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/93586 for the 
current score

CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined

CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:N)

CVE-ID: CVE-2014-0221

DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a 
recursion error in the DTLS client. By sending an invalid DTLS handshake, a 
remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause the application to 
crash.

CVSS Base Score: 4.3

CVSS Temporal Score: See http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/93587 for the 
current score

CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined

CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)

CVE-ID: CVE-2014-0195

DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL is vulnerable to a buffer overflow. By sending invalid 
DTLS packet fragments, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to 
overrun the client or server and execute arbitrary code on a DTLS client or 
server.

CVSS Base Score: 7.5

CVSS Temporal Score: See http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/93588 for the 
current score

CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined

CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)

CVE-ID: CVE-2014-0198

DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a NULL 
pointer dereference in the do_ssl3_write() function. If 
SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS is enabled, a remote attacker could exploit this 
vulnerability to cause the application to crash.

CVSS Base Score: 4.3

CVSS Temporal Score: See http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/93000 for the 
current score

CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined

CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)

CVE-ID: CVE-2010-5298

DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a race 
condition in the ssl3_read_bytes function. If SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS is 
enabled, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability using an SSL connection
in a multithreaded environment to inject data into an SSL stream and cause a 
denial of service.

CVSS Base Score: 4

CVSS Temporal Score: See http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/92632 for the 
current score

CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined

CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:H/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:P)

CVE-ID: CVE-2014-3470

DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by the 
implementation of anonymous ECDH ciphersuites. A remote attacker could exploit
this vulnerability to cause a denial of service.

CVSS Base Score: 4.3

CVSS Temporal Score: See http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/93589 for the 
current score

CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined

CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)

CVE-ID: CVE-2014-0076

DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL could allow a local attacker to obtain sensitive 
information, caused by an implementation error in ECDSA (Elliptic Curve 
Digital Signature Algorithm). An attacker could exploit this vulnerability 
using the FLUSH+RELOAD cache side-channel attack to recover ECDSA nonces.

CVSS Base Score: 2.1

CVSS Temporal Score: See http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/91990

CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined

CVSS Vector: (AV:L/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)

Affected Products and Versions

SmartCloud Orchestrator 2.3 and 2.3 FP1

Remediation/Fixes

The only component of SmartCloud Orchestrator is vulnetable to these CVEs is 
the Image Construction and COmposition Tool bundle named "Enablement Bundle 
for Virtual Applications and System Plugins on Windows".

Customers are requested to remove this bundle from Image Construction and 
Composition Tool.

This bundle is not automatically included in images extended via Image 
Construction and Composition Tool and is not needed for any of the officially
supported SmartCloud Orchestartor functionalities.
