Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : openssl (cve_2014_0224_cryptographic_issues1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party
software.

Description :

The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address
security updates :

- OpenSSL before 0.9.8za, 1.0.0 before 1.0.0m, and 1.0.1
before 1.0.1h does not properly restrict processing of
ChangeCipherSpec messages, which allows
man-in-the-middle attackers to trigger use of a
zero-length master key in certain OpenSSL-to-OpenSSL
communications, and consequently hijack sessions or
obtain sensitive information, via a crafted TLS
handshake, aka the 'CCS Injection' vulnerability.
(CVE-2014-0224)
