January 2017 OpenSSL Vulnerabilities in Multiple NetApp Products


Multiple NetApp products incorporate the OpenSSL software libraries to provide cryptographic capabilities. OpenSSL versions below 1.0.2k and 1.1.0d are susceptible to vulnerabilities that could lead to out-of-bound reads, process crashes, Denial of Service (DoS) attacks, or incorrect results. NetApp is investigating which products use affected versions of OpenSSL. This advisory will be updated as additional information becomes available.


Exploitation of these vulnerabilities may lead to out-of-bound reads, process crashes, Denial of Service (DoS) attacks, or incorrect results.
