Network Security Sensor response to CVE-2015-4000 (Not Vulnerable)
Technical Articles ID:   KB84953
Last Modified:  1/5/2018


McAfee Network Security Sensor Appliance 8.x, 7.x


The vulnerability CVE-2015-4000 has been reported against the TLS protocol.

TLS protocol 1.2 and earlier does not properly convey a DHE_EXPORT choice when a DHE_EXPORT cipher suite is enabled on a server (but not on a client). This can allow man-in-the-middle attackers to conduct cipher-downgrade attacks by rewriting a Client Hello with DHE replaced by DHE_EXPORT and then rewriting a Server Hello with DHE_EXPORT replaced by DHE. This is also known as the Logjam issue.

The Network Security Sensor is not vulnerable to CVE-2015-4000 because double authentication is required to log in.
