05.12.2015 - MS15-055 - Important: Vulnerability in Schannel Could Allow Information Disclosure (3061518) - Version: 1.0

View Microsoft related news. Severity Rating: Important
Revision Note: V1.0 (May 12, 2015): Bulletin published.
Summary: This security update resolves a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows. The vulnerability could allow information disclosure when Secure Channel (Schannel) allows the use of a weak Diffie-Hellman ephemeral (DHE) key length of 512 bits in an encrypted TLS session. Allowing 512-bit DHE keys makes DHE key exchanges weak and vulnerable to various attacks. A server needs to support 512-bit DHE key lengths for an attack to be successful; the minimum allowable DHE key length in default configurations of Windows servers is 1024 bits.
