2) Cryptographic issues

EUVDB-ID: #VU45988

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-15309

CWE-ID: CWE-310 - Cryptographic Issues

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a local user to gain access to sensitive information.

The vulnerability exists in wolfSSL when single precision is not employed. A local user can conduct a cache-timing attack against public key operations. These attackers may already have obtained sensitive information if the affected system has been used for private key operations (e.g., signing with a private key).

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

EUVDB-ID: #VU45987

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-24585

CWE-ID: CWE-399 - Resource Management Errors

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to perform a denial of service (DoS) attack.

The vulnerability exists due to improper management of internal resources with the application within the DTLS handshake implementation in wolfSSL. Clear DTLS application_data messages in epoch 0 do not produce an out-of-order error. Instead, these messages are returned to the application.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.
