Vulnerability Details

CVEID:

CVE-2016-0701

DESCRIPTION:

OpenSSL could allow a remote attacker to conduct man-in-the-middle attacks,
caused by the use of weak Diffie-Hellman parameters based on unsafe primes
that are generated and stored in X9.42-style parameter files. By performing
multiple handshakes using the same private DH exponent, an attacker could
exploit this vulnerability to conduct man-in-the-middle attacks.

CVSS Base Score: 5.4

CVSS Temporal Score: See

https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/110234

for the current score

CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined

CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:N)

CVEID:

CVE-2015-3197

DESCRIPTION:

OpenSSL could allow a remote attacker to conduct man-in-the-middle attacks,
caused by an error related to the negotiation of disabled SSLv2 ciphers by
malicious SSL/TLS clients. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to
conduct man-in-the-middle attacks.

CVSS Base Score: 5.4

CVSS Temporal Score: See

https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/110235
