EulerOS 2.0 SP3 : openssl098e (EulerOS-SA-2020-1420)

high Nessus Plugin ID 135549

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description

According to the version of the openssl098e package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :

- The DTLS implementation in OpenSSL before 1.1.0 does not properly restrict the lifetime of queue entries associated with unused out-of-order messages, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by maintaining many crafted DTLS sessions simultaneously, related to d1_lib.c, statem_dtls.c, statem_lib.c, and statem_srvr.c.(CVE-2016-2179)

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 openssl098e package.
