CVE-2009-3555

NameCVE-2009-3555
DescriptionThe TLS protocol, and the SSL protocol 3.0 and possibly earlier, as used in Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.0, mod_ssl in the Apache HTTP Server 2.2.14 and earlier, OpenSSL before 0.9.8l, GnuTLS 2.8.5 and earlier, Mozilla Network Security Services (NSS) 3.12.4 and earlier, multiple Cisco products, and other products, does not properly associate renegotiation handshakes with an existing connection, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to insert data into HTTPS sessions, and possibly other types of sessions protected by TLS or SSL, by sending an unauthenticated request that is processed retroactively by a server in a post-renegotiation context, related to a "plaintext injection" attack, aka the "Project Mogul" issue.

Notes

[lenny] - sun-java5 <no-dsa> (Minor issue)
Update 22 for Sun Java implemented the new RFC extension
[lenny] - matrixssl <no-dsa> (Fringe SSL implementation, can be fixed in spu)
[lenny] - tomcat-native <no-dsa> (Minor issue)
- gnutls26 <not-affected> (safely handles renegotiation; however support for RFC 5746 would be useful)
[squeeze] - zorp <no-dsa> (Minor issue)
[lenny] - zorp <no-dsa> (Minor issue)
[jessie] - pound <no-dsa> (Minor issue)
the anti_beast.patch in pound 2.6-2 has some provision for this issue too but it seems to be broken, cf #765649
for any of the currently unfixed implementations, you can solve the problem by disabling renegotiation
the following implement RFC 5746:
- openssl 0.9.8m-1
- apache 2.2.15-1
- nss 3.12.6-1
- sun-java6 6.19-1
