3) Input validation error

EUVDB-ID: #VU41118

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-19963

CWE-ID: CWE-20 - Improper Input Validation

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote non-authenticated attacker to gain access to sensitive information.

An issue was discovered in wolfSSL before 4.3.0 in a non-default configuration where DSA is enabled. DSA signing uses the BEEA algorithm during modular inversion of the nonce, leading to a side-channel attack against the nonce.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.
