Multiple vulnerabilities in SSL/TLS implementations

Vulnerability Note VU#104280

Original Release Date: 2003-09-30 | Last Revised: 2004-08-25

Overview

Multiple vulnerabilities exist in different vendors' SSL/TLS implementations. The impacts of these vulnerabilities include remote execution of arbitrary code, denial of service, and disclosure of sensitive information.

Description

The U.K. National Infrastructure Security Co-ordination Centre (NISCC) has reported multiple vulnerabilities in different vendors' implementations of the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocols. SSL and TLS are commonly used to provide authentication, encryption, integrity, and non-repudiation services to network applications such as HTTP, IMAP, POP3, LDAP, and others. Clients and servers exchange authentication information in X.509 certificates. While the SSL and TLS protocols do not use ASN.1/BER to communicate at the application layer, they do require an ASN.1 parser to encode and decode X.509 certificates and other cryptographic elements (e.g., PKCS#1 encoded RSA values and PKCS#7 encoded S/MIME parts) at the presentation layer.

A test suite developed by NISCC has exposed vulnerabilities in a variety of SSL/TLS implementations. While most of these vulnerabilities exist in ASN.1 parsing routines, some vulnerabilities may occur elsewhere. Note that cryptographic libraries that implement SSL/TLS frequently provide more general-purpose cryptographic utility. In such libraries, it is common for ASN.1 parsing code to be shared between SSL/TLS and other cryptographic functions.

Due to the general lack of specific vulnerability information, this document covers multiple vulnerabilities in different SSL/TLS implementations. Information about individual vendors is available in the Systems Affected section. Note that VU#104280 broadly covers ASN.1 related vulnerabilities in SSL/TLS implementations other than OpenSSL. VU#255484, VU#732952, VU#380864, VU#686224, and VU#935264 are specific to OpenSSL.

Further information is available in NISCC advisory 006489/TLS.

This set of vulnerabilities is different from those described in VU#748355/CA-2002-23.

Impact

The impacts associated with these vulnerabilities include execution of arbitrary code, denial of service, and disclosure of sensitive information.

Secure Computing Corporation

Notified:  September 30, 2003 Updated:  October 15, 2003

Status

  Vulnerable

Vendor Statement

Sidewinder(r) and Sidewinder G2 Firewall(tm) (including all appliances)

Sidewinder v5.x and Sidewinder G2 v6.x are not vulnerable to the arbitrary code execution attacks described in this advisory. The Sidewinder's embedded Type Enforcement technology strictly limits the capabilities of each component which implements SSL. Any attempt to exploit this vulnerability in the SSL library code running on the firewall results in an automatic termination of the attacker's connection and multiple Type Enforcement alarms.

Any component attacked by the denial of service (DOS) attacks described in this advisory is automatically restarted by the firewall's watchdog process without interuption of any active connections. However, under some circumstances this DOS could cause a delay in managing the firewall.

To mitigate this inconvenience, customers should contact Secure Computing Customer Support.

Gauntlet(tm) & e-ppliance

Gauntlet and e-ppliance do not include any components based on OpenSSL, and are thus immune to these vulnerabilities.

Stunnel

Notified:  September 30, 2003 Updated:  October 01, 2003

Status

  Vulnerable

Vendor Statement

Stunnel requires the OpenSSL libraries for compilation (POSIX) or OpenSSL DLLs for runtime operation (Windows). While Stunnel itself is not vulnerable, it's dependence on OpenSSL means that your installation likely is vulnerable.

If you compile from source, you need to install a non-vulnerable version of OpenSSL and recompile Stunnel.

If you use the compiled Windows DLLs from stunnel.org, you should download new versions which are not vulnerable. OpenSSL 0.9.7c DLLs are available at http://www.stunnel.org/download/stunnel/win32/openssl-0.9.7c/

No new version of Stunnel source or executable will be made available, because the problems are inside OpenSSL -- Stunnel itself does not have the vulnerability.

Status

  Not Vulnerable

Vendor Statement

Clavister Firewall: Not vulnerable

As of version 8.3, Clavister Firewall implements an optional HTTP/S server for purposes of user authentication. However, since this implementation does not support client certificates and has no ASN.1 parser code, there can be no ASN.1-related vulnerabilities as far as SSL is concerned.

Earlier versions of Clavister Firewall do not implement any SSL services.
