openSUSE Security Update : openssl (openSUSE-2018-704)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 110960
SynopsisThe remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update for openssl fixes the following issues :
- CVE-2018-0732: During key agreement in a TLS handshake using a DH(E) based ciphersuite a malicious server could have sent a very large prime value to the client. This caused the client to spend an unreasonably long period of time generating a key for this prime resulting in a hang until the client has finished. This could be exploited in a Denial Of Service attack (bsc#1097158).
- Blinding enhancements for ECDSA and DSA (bsc#1097624, bsc#1098592)
This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12-SP2:Update update project.
