This pack is part of the Rapid Breach Response pack.
On November 1, OpenSSL released a security advisory describing two high severity vulnerabilities within the OpenSSL library, CVE-2022-3786 and CVE-2022-3602. OpenSSL versions from 3.0.0 - 3.0.6 are vulnerable, with 3.0.7 containing the patch for both vulnerabilities. OpenSSL 1.1.1 and 1.0.2 are not affected by this issue.
The vulnerability described in CVE-2022-3602 allows an attacker to obtain a 4-byte overflow on the stack by crafting a malicious email address within the attacker-controlled certificate. The overflow will result in a crash (most likely scenario) or potentially remote code execution (much less likely). In CVE-2022-3786, an attacker can achieve a stack overflow of arbitrary length by crafting a malicious email address within the attacker-controlled certificate.
Both vulnerabilities are “triggered through X.509 certificate verification, specifically, name constraint checking. Note that this occurs after certificate chain signature verification and requires either a CA to have signed the malicious certificate or for the application to continue certificate verification despite failure to construct a path to a trusted issuer.”
The playbook includes the following tasks:
- Hunting for active processes running OpenSSL vulnerable versions using:
- Cortex XDR
- Azure Sentinel
- Cortex Xpanse
- OpenSSL official patch
