Check Point response to OpenSSL vulnerability CVE-2007-5135

Check Point products are not vulnerable to OpenSSL off-by-one vulnerability in the SSL_get_shared_ciphers function (CVE-2007-5135).

An off-by-one error in the SSL_get_shared_ciphers function in OpenSSL 0.9.7l and 0.9.8d might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted packet that triggers a one-byte buffer underflow. This issue is listed as CVE-2007-5135.

This vulnerability was introduced into OpenSSL code while fixing the OpenSSL vulnerability "SSL_get_shared_ciphers() buffer overflow" (CVE-2006-3738), which was published on September 28th, 2006.

Check Point products did not use the original vulnerable function, and the fix for CVE-2006-3738 was not imported into the Check Point code-base. Therefore, vulnerability CVE-2007-5135 was not introduced to the Check Point product code.

While Check Point products are not vulnerable, we have introduced a fix into the Check Point code in case the original vulnerable function is ever utilized in the future.

This solution is about products that are no longer supported and it will not be updated
