New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update for openssl fixes the following issues :
- CVE-2018-0739: Constructed ASN.1 types with a recursive definition (such as can be found in PKCS7) could eventually exceed the stack given malicious input with excessive recursion. This could result in a Denial Of Service attack. There are no such structures used within SSL/TLS that come from untrusted sources so this is considered safe. (bsc#1087102).
This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12-SP2:Update update project.
SolutionUpdate the affected openssl packages.
