Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : openssl (MDVSA-2009:120)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Multiple security vulnerabilities has been identified and fixed in
OpenSSL :

The dtls1_buffer_record function in ssl/d1_pkt.c in OpenSSL 0.9.8k and
earlier 0.9.8 versions allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (memory consumption) via a large series of future epoch DTLS
records that are buffered in a queue, aka DTLS record buffer
limitation bug. (CVE-2009-1377)

Multiple memory leaks in the dtls1_process_out_of_seq_message function
in ssl/d1_both.c in OpenSSL 0.9.8k and earlier 0.9.8 versions allow
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via
DTLS records that (1) are duplicates or (2) have sequence numbers much
greater than current sequence numbers, aka DTLS fragment handling
memory leak. (CVE-2009-1378)

The updated packages have been patched to prevent this.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 4.3
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : false
