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 openssl fixes the following issues :

These security issues were fixed :

- Prevent One&Done side-channel attack on RSA that allowed physically near attackers to use EM emanations to recover information (bsc#1104789)

- 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)

These non-security issues were fixed :

- Add openssl(cli) Provide so the packages that require the openssl binary can require this instead of the new openssl meta package (bsc#1101470)

- Fixed path to the engines which are under /lib64 on SLE-12 (bsc#1101246, bsc#997043)

This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12-SP2:Update update project.

Solution

Update the affected openssl packages.
