The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
It was discovered that the Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS)
protocol implementation in OpenSSL leaked timing information when
performing certain operations. A remote attacker could possibly use
this flaw to retrieve plain text from the encrypted packets by using a
DTLS server as a padding oracle. (CVE-2011-4108)
An information leak flaw was found in the SSL 3.0 protocol
implementation in OpenSSL. Incorrect initialization of SSL record
padding bytes could cause an SSL client or server to send a limited
amount of possibly sensitive data to its SSL peer via the encrypted
A denial of service flaw was found in the RFC 3779 implementation in
OpenSSL. A remote attacker could use this flaw to make an application
using OpenSSL exit unexpectedly by providing a specially crafted X.509
certificate that has malformed RFC 3779 extension data.
It was discovered that OpenSSL did not limit the number of TLS/SSL
handshake restarts required to support Server Gated Cryptography. A
remote attacker could use this flaw to make a TLS/SSL server using
OpenSSL consume an excessive amount of CPU by continuously restarting
the handshake. (CVE-2011-4619)
