Solution

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.
