CVE-2022-38152

Status Candidate

Overview

An issue was discovered in wolfSSL before 5.5.0. When a TLS 1.3 client connects to a wolfSSL server and SSL_clear is called on its session, the server crashes with a segmentation fault. This occurs in the second session, which is created through TLS session resumption and reuses the initial struct WOLFSSL. If the server reuses the previous session structure (struct WOLFSSL) by calling wolfSSL_clear(WOLFSSL* ssl) on it, the next received Client Hello (that resumes the previous session) crashes the server. Note that this bug is only triggered when resuming sessions using TLS session resumption. Only servers that use wolfSSL_clear instead of the recommended SSL_free; SSL_new sequence are affected. Furthermore, wolfSSL_clear is part of wolfSSL's compatibility layer and is not enabled by default. It is not part of wolfSSL's native API.

wolfSSL Session Resumption Denial Of Service
Posted Jan 20, 2023
Authored by Maximilian Ammann

wolfSSL versions prior to 5.5.0 suffer from a denial of service condition related to session resumption. When a TLS 1.3 client connects to a wolfSSL server and SSL_clear is called on its session, the server crashes with a segmentation fault. The bug occurs after a client performs a handshake against a wolfSSL server and then closes the connection. If the server reuses the previous session structure (struct WOLFSSL) by calling wolfSSL_clear(WOLFSSL* ssl) on it, the next received Client Hello, which resumes the previous session, crashes the server. Note, that this bug only exists in resumed handshakes using TLS session resumption. This bug was discovered using the novel symbolic-model-guided fuzzer tlspuffin.
