Re: SSL RC4 Cipher Suites Supported

SSL RC4 Cipher Suites Supported

My Nessus scan indicates the NAS has SSL RC4 Cipher Suites Supported. The risk factor is LOW so not a big deal but I would like to resolve the issue. I have tried tweaking the httpd.conf, the ssl.conf with now luck. Is there something I am missing? Does Netgear have a newer firmware coming out to rectify this issue?


The NAS is currently running the latest firmware 6.9.2 and I see nothing more current.


Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Hi @netsysengineer


Welcome to the community!


You may want to update to 6.9.3 which contains security updates to the Kernel. CVE-2013-2566, CVE-2015-2808 have been detected on other devices and was resolved through a firmware update.


If you can provide documentation regarding the vulnerability on the ReadyNAS you can check here to report what you have found.


If you can provide us the report you got it would be great as well.



Hope this helps!

Re: SSL RC4 Cipher Suites Supported

I performed firmware update to latest 6.9.3 and it did not resolve my issue with weak SSL cipher. My nessus scan indicates SSL RC4 Cipher suite is supported and it is still supporting weak cipher algorithms. I need RC4 dissabled and to Disable the DES-CBC3-SHA cipher on port 21 and 443. There is no way to manually change these settings that I can find so I am relying on firmware upgrade to resiolve my issue.
