Security Bulletin


Summary

Open Source OpenSSL is used by IBM Netezza Analytics. IBM Netezza Analytics has addressed the applicable CVEs.

Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2018-0732
DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by the sending of a very large prime value to the client by a malicious server during key agreement in a TLS handshake. By spending an unreasonably long period of time generating a key for this prime, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause the client to hang.
CVSS Base Score: 3.7
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/144658 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:L)

CVEID: CVE-2018-0737
DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL could allow a local attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by a cache-timing side channel attack in the RSA Key generation algorithm. An attacker with access to mount cache timing attacks during the RSA key generation process could exploit this vulnerability to recover the private key and obtain sensitive information.
CVSS Base Score: 3.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/141679 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2018-0739
DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL is vulnerable to a denial of service. By sending specially crafted ASN.1 data with a recursive definition, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to consume excessive stack memory.
CVSS Base Score: 5.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/140847 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:L)
