SUSE SLED12 / SLES12 Security Update : openssl (SUSE-SU-2014:1524-1) (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 :

openssl was updated to fix four security issues.

These security issues were fixed :

- SRTP Memory Leak (CVE-2014-3513).

- Session Ticket Memory Leak (CVE-2014-3567).

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

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

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.

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.
