Hello,

My internal security department reports that IDSA is incorporating a vulnerable version of OpenSSL libraries (v3.0.2).

The vulnerability is fixed starting OpenSSL v 3.0.7 .

Could you fix this and release quickly an update to close this vulnerabilty ?
Thanks a lot,

-Pierre

I'm surprised that 2 days after report, Intel doesn't take action quicker to fix a security vulneratibility within DSA and release a new version.

Instead, I'm asked whether the reply above satisfies me... !

Please fix this issue by releasing a DSA update containing at least OpenSSL 3.0.7 libraries level.

Thanks

Hello Pierre_Decrocq


Our developers confirmed that Intel® DSA does not use OpenSSL at all. Therefore, we would like to know if you may provide us with more details on what your internal security department found. Screenshots are also helpful.


Also, could you please check if you have the Intel® Computing Improvement Program installed? If so, please uninstall it and review if the behavior persists.

Please refer to this article Intel® Computing Improvement Program under the section "Leaving the Program > How do I uninstall the Intel® Computing Improvement Program?"

Hi @AndrewG_Intel check out this other post in this forum. You well see that OpenSSL is being flagged as part of an  Intel Install: OpenSSL vulnerability - CVE-2022-3602/CVE-2022-3786 - Intel Communities

 

You may want to point your developers at that information.

Hello Pierre_Decrocq

Thank you for your response.


We have checked the other thread you pointed out, and based on the information there, the issue seemed to be related to the Intel® Computing Improvement Program (Intel® CIP). Actually, one of the users there has confirmed that after removing Intel® CIP (following the given instructions) "the vulnerability was not found any more".


We are thinking that the issue you are reporting might also be due to the Intel® CIP (and not due to Intel® DSA, which doesn't use OpenSSL). That's the reason why we wanted to know if you have the Intel® Computing Improvement Program installed and if uninstalling it would stop the vulnerability alert.


We would really appreciate it if you could confirm if you have Intel® CIP installed. If so, please try to remove it to see if the behavior is different or not. We are just trying to properly identify the specific root cause of the issue and make sure whether you see this vulnerability due to Intel® CIP or Intel® DSA.


If you confirm the issue is not related to Intel® CIP (e.g.: after removing Intel® CIP there is no change

or if the program was never present on the system), please provide us with more details on what your internal security department found so we can investigate this further (and thus, we can discard that your issue is due to the same root cause as the one reported on the other thread).


Best regards,

Hello,

As promised I have checked and indeed I had Intel Computing Imrpvoement Program).

I removed it and the SSL library has disappeared. Thanks !

However, I think you need to inform your colleagues in charge of Intel CIP, that they are disctributing an outdated libssl library and update it to at least v3.0.7. I trust you that you'll do it.

Thanks !
