EulerOS Virtualization 2.5.4 : openssl (EulerOS-SA-2019-1201)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 123887

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS Virtualization host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the openssl packages installed, the EulerOS Virtualization installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Libgcrypt before 1.7.10 and 1.8.x before 1.8.3 allows a memory-cache side-channel attack on ECDSA signatures that can be mitigated through the use of blinding during the signing process in the _gcry_ecc_ecdsa_sign function in cipher/ecc-ecdsa.c, aka the Return Of the Hidden Number Problem or ROHNP. To discover an ECDSA key, the attacker needs access to either the local machine or a different virtual machine on the same physical host.i1/4^CVE-2018-0495i1/4%0

- During key agreement in a TLS handshake using a DH(E) based ciphersuite a malicious server can send a very large prime value to the client. This will cause 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. Fixed in OpenSSL 1.1.0i-dev (Affected 1.1.0-1.1.0h). Fixed in OpenSSL 1.0.2p-dev (Affected 1.0.2-1.0.2o).i1/4^CVE-2018-0732i1/4%0

- 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. Fixed in OpenSSL 1.1.0h (Affected 1.1.0-1.1.0g). Fixed in OpenSSL 1.0.2o (Affected 1.0.2b-1.0.2n).i1/4^CVE-2018-0739i1/4%0

- While parsing an IPAddressFamily extension in an X.509 certificate, it is possible to do a one-byte overread.
This would result in an incorrect text display of the certificate. This bug has been present since 2006 and is present in all versions of OpenSSL before 1.0.2m and 1.1.0g.i1/4^CVE-2017-3735i1/4%0

- OpenSSL RSA key generation was found to be vulnerable to cache side-channel attacks. An attacker with sufficient access to mount cache timing attacks during the RSA key generation process could recover parts of the private key.i1/4^CVE-2018-0737i1/4%0

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

Solution

Update the affected openssl packages.
