CVE-2024-23688 is a vulnerability that affects Consensys Discovery versions prior to 0.4.5. This vulnerability occurs because the same AES/GCM nonce is used for the entire session, rather than generating a unique nonce for each message. It is important to note that the node's private key remains uncompromised, but the session key used for specific peer communication is exposed. The potential danger this vulnerability poses to an organization is considered medium, with a base score of 5.3 out of 10. To remediate this vulnerability, it is recommended to update Consensys Discovery to version 0.4.5 or later, which addresses this issue by using unique nonces for each message exchanged during a session.
