ESA-2013-045: RSA BSAFE® SSL-C Security Update for SSL/TLS Plaintext Recovery (aka “Lucky Thirteen”) Vulnerability


EMC Identifier: ESA-2013-045


CVE Identifier: CVE-2013-0169


Severity Rating: CVSS v2 Base Score: 2.6 (AV:N/AC:H/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)



Affected Products:

All versions of RSA BSAFE SSL-C except for 2.8.7



Unaffected Products:

RSA BSAFE SSL-C 2.8.7 (newly released)


Summary:

RSA BSAFE SSL-C 2.8.7 contains updates designed to prevent SSL/TLS Plaintext Recovery (aka Lucky Thirteen) attacks (CVE-2013-0169).



Details:

Researchers have discovered a weakness in the handling of CBC cipher suites in SSL, TLS and DTLS. The “Lucky Thirteen” attack exploits timing differences arising during MAC processing. Vulnerable implementations do not properly consider timing side-channel attacks on a MAC check requirement during the processing of malformed CBC padding, which allows remote attackers to conduct distinguishing attacks and plaintext-recovery attacks via statistical analysis of timing data for crafted packets, aka the "Lucky Thirteen" issue.


Details of this attack can be found at: http://www.isg.rhul.ac.uk/tls/TLStiming.pdf



Recommendation:

RSA BSAFE SSL-C 2.8.7 contains a patch that is designed to help ensure that MAC checking is time invariant in servers.


RSA recommends that customers on RSA BSAFE SSL-C 2.8.6 or lower upgrade to RSA BSAFE SSL-C 2.8.7.


Customers can also protect against the attack by disabling CBC mode cipher suites on clients and servers. Cipher suites that use RC4 and, if TLS 1.2 is available, AES-GCM can be used.
