Embedded ComponentCVE IDSummary of VulnerabilityReason why Product is not VulnerableDate Determined False Positive
MESCVE-2018-0737The OpenSSL RSA Key generation algorithm has been shown to be vulnerable to a cache timing side channel attack. An attacker with sufficient access to mount cache timing attacks during the RSA key generation process could recover the private key.MES and CCME are not susceptible to this attack in the same way as OpenSSL because it describes attacks on BN_mod_inverse() which is used by OpenSSL's RSA key generation to determine then GCD == 1. CCME/MES make calls directly to BN_gcd() then checks if GCD == 1.5/3/2018
