SUSE SLED12 Security Update : compat-openssl098 (SUSE-SU-2014:1512-1) (POODLE)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

compat-openssl098 was updated to fix three security issues.

NOTE: this update alone DOESN'T FIX the POODLE SSL protocol
vulnerability. OpenSSL only adds downgrade detection support for
client applications. See
https://www.suse.com/support/kb/doc.php?id=7015773 for mitigations.

These security issues were fixed :

- Session ticket memory leak (CVE-2014-3567).

- Fixed build option no-ssl3 (CVE-2014-3568).

- Added support for TLS_FALLBACK_SCSV (CVE-2014-3566).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
