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.

Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

This update for compat-openssl098 fixes the following security 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)

- CVE-2018-0737: The 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 have recovered the private key (bsc#1089039)

- 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 have resulted in DoS (bsc#1087102).

This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12:Update update project.

Solution

Update the affected compat-openssl098 packages.
