openSUSE Security Update : libopenssl-devel (libopenssl-devel-1554)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

The TLS/SSLv3 protocol as implemented in openssl prior to this update
was not able to associate data to a renegotiated connection. This
allowed man-in-the-middle attackers to inject HTTP requests in a HTTPS
session without being noticed. For example Apache's mod_ssl was
vulnerable to this kind of attack because it uses openssl. Please note
that renegotiation will be disabled by this update and may cause
problems in some cases. (CVE-2009-3555: CVSS v2 Base Score: 6.4)
