Home CVE Database CVE-2015-3197



an issue where a connecting client can force an SSL handshake to complete via SSLv2, even if allSSLv2 ciphers are disabled. It is important to note that simply disabling the SSLv2 ciphers on your OpenSSL server will not mitigate this issue. In order to prevent an SSLv2 connection, support for the actual protocol must be disabled as well. In other words, even if the server configuration only allows strong ciphers (such as AES-GCM) that are not part of SSLv2, it is possible for an attacker to \"slip through\" these disabled ciphers and complete a handshake usingSSLv2. SSLv2 is a weak and broken protocol and should not be used. If that\'s not possible -- and really, the only reason is having to support very old clients
