This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

OpenSSL has been updated to fix several security issues :

- Avoid the openssl CRIME attack by disabling SSL
compression by default. Setting the environment variable
'OPENSSL_NO_DEFAULT_ZLIB' to 'no' enables compression
again. (CVE-2012-4929)

Please note that openssl on SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 is
not built with compression support.

- Timing attacks against TLS could be used by physically
local attackers to gain access to transmitted plain text
or private keymaterial. This issue is also known as the
'Lucky-13' issue. (CVE-2013-0169)

- A OCSP invalid key denial of service issue was fixed.
(CVE-2013-0166)
