This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2014 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-201110-01
(OpenSSL: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in OpenSSL. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact :

A context-dependent attacker could cause a Denial of Service, possibly
execute arbitrary code, bypass intended key requirements, force the
downgrade to unintended ciphers, bypass the need for knowledge of shared
secrets and successfully authenticate, bypass CRL validation, or obtain
sensitive information in applications that use OpenSSL.

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-1.0.0e'
NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since September 17, 2011. It is likely that your system is
already no longer affected by most of these issues.

Risk factor :

Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
