Multiple OpenSSL vulnerabilities have been found in the PCS and PPS devices.
CVEIssueCVE DescriptionCVSS Score
CVE-2012-2131OpenSSL buffer overflow issue

Multiple integer signedness errors in OpenSSL allow remote attackers to conduct buffer overflow attacks, and cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact, via crafted DER data, as demonstrated by an X.509 certificate or an RSA public key.


CVE-2013-0169Lucky Thirteen SSL issue

The TLS protocol 1.1 and 1.2 and the DTLS protocol 1.0 and 1.2, as used in OpenSSL do not properly consider timing side-channel attacks on a MAC check requirement during the processing of malformed CBC padding, which allows remote attackers to conduct distinguishing attacks and plaintext-recovery attacks via statistical analysis of timing data for crafted packets, aka the "Lucky Thirteen" issue.


CVE-2013-0166OpenSSL OCSP DoS issue

OpenSSL does not properly perform signature verification for OCSP responses, which allows remote OCSP servers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via an invalid key.


Software updates to PCS and PPS have been released to resolve this issue. Releases containing the fix include PCS 7.4r3, 7.3r6, 7.2r11, 7.1r15 , and PPS 4.4r3, 4.3r6, 4.2r5.1, and 4.1r8.1.
There are no workarounds for the issues contained in this JSA. The only way to correct these vulnerabilities is to upgrade to software that contains a fix.
