Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : openssl (cve_2014_3508_information_disclosure)

Synopsis :

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

Description :

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

- The OBJ_obj2txt function in crypto/objects/obj_dat.c in
OpenSSL 0.9.8 before 0.9.8zb, 1.0.0 before 1.0.0n, and
1.0.1 before 1.0.1i, when pretty printing is used, does
not ensure the presence of '\0' characters, which allows
context-dependent attackers to obtain sensitive
information from process stack memory by reading output
from X509_name_oneline, X509_name_print_ex, and
unspecified other functions. (CVE-2014-3508)

- The ssl23_get_client_hello function in s23_srvr.c in
OpenSSL 1.0.1 before 1.0.1i allows man-in-the-middle
attackers to force the use of TLS 1.0 by triggering
ClientHello message fragmentation in communication
between a client and server that both support later TLS
versions, related to a 'protocol downgrade' issue.
