Severity: 3-Major


BIG-IP virtual servers doing TLS termination are not vulnerable to CVE-2014-0224. OpenSSL has made a change to disallow early change cipher spec messages. This fix imitates that behavior.


We should not tolerate the received wrong SSL message sequence. In this case, CCS(change-cipher-spec) is received before Client key exchange.


CCS(change-cipher-spec) is received before Client key exchange



Fix Information

BIG-IP TLS virtual servers will now reject the connection when an early CCS message is received.
