Sourcefire 3D SSL man-in-the-middle

sourcefire3d-ssl-mitm (59380) The risk level is classified as MediumMedium Risk

Description:

Sourcefire 3D is vulnerable to a man-in-the-middle attack, caused by the use of common private SSL keys for multiple devices and the default installation. A remote attacker from within the local network with access to one copy of the key could exploit this to perform a man-in-the-middle attack to intercept SSL communications between other devices.
