Debian DLA-1449-1 : openssl security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 111390

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Two issues were discovered in OpenSSL, the Secure Sockets Layer toolkit.

CVE-2018-0732

Denial of service by a malicious server that sends a very large prime value to the client during TLS handshake.

CVE-2018-0737

Alejandro Cabrera Aldaya, Billy Brumley, Cesar Pereida Garcia and Luis Manuel Alvarez Tapia discovered that the OpenSSL RSA Key generation algorithm has been shown to be vulnerable to a cache timing side channel attack. An attacker with sufficient access to mount cache timing attacks during the RSA key generation process could recover the private key.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.1t-1+deb8u9.

We recommend that you upgrade your openssl packages.

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

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
