Security Bulletin: Vulnerabilities in OpenSSL affect Cognos Insight
More support for:
10.2, 10.2.1, 10.2.2
OpenSSL vulnerabilities were disclosed on January 8, 2015 by the OpenSSL
Project. This includes FREAK: Factoring Attack on RSA-EXPORT keys" TLS/SSL
client and server vulnerability. OpenSSL is used by Cognos Insight. Cognos
Insight has addressed the applicable CVEs.
DESCRIPTION: A vulnerability in the OpenSSL ssl3_get_key_exchange function
could allow a remote attacker to downgrade the security of certain TLS
connections. An OpenSSL client accepts the use of an RSA temporary key in a
non-export RSA key exchange ciphersuite. This could allow a remote attacker
using man-in-the-middle techniques to facilitate brute-force decryption of
TLS/SSL traffic between vulnerable clients and servers.
This vulnerability is also known as the FREAK attack.
