Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2019-1552
DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL could allow a local attacker to bypass security restrictions, caused by the building of . mingw programs or Windows programs with world writable path defaults. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to modify default configuration, insert CA certificates, modify (or even replace) existing engine modules.
CVSS Base Score: 2.9
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/164498 for the current score.
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:L/A:N)
 
CVEID: CVE-2019-1563
DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by a padding oracle attack in PKCS7_dataDecode and CMS_decrypt_set1_pkey. By sending an overly large number of messages to be decrypted, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to obtain sensitive information.
CVSS Base Score: 3.7
