Synopsis

The remote host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch

Description

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SuSE-SA:2004:007 (openssl).


OpenSSL is an implementation of the Secure Socket Layer (SSL v2/3) and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) protocol.
The NISCC informed us about to failure conditions in openssl that can be triggered to crash applications that use the openssl library.
The first bug occurs during SSL/TLS handshake in the function do_change_cipher_spec() due to a NULL pointer assignment.
The second bug affects openssl version 0.9.7* only with Kerberos cipher suite enabled and can be triggered during SSL/TLS handshake too.

Please download the update package for your distribution and verify its integrity by the methods listed in section 3) of this announcement.
Then, install the package using the command 'rpm -Fhv file.rpm' to apply the update.
