This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200710-30
(OpenSSL: Remote execution of arbitrary code)

Andy Polyakov reported a vulnerability in the OpenSSL toolkit, that is
caused due to an unspecified off-by-one error within the DTLS
implementation.

Impact :

A remote attacker could exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code or
cause a Denial of Service. Only clients and servers explicitly using
DTLS are affected, systems using SSL and TLS are not.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.

Solution :

All OpenSSL users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=dev-libs/openssl-0.9.8f'

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 9.3
