RHEL 9 : openssl (RHSA-2022:6224)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 164507

Synopsis

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates for openssl.

Description

The remote Redhat Enterprise Linux 9 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the RHSA-2022:6224 advisory.

- openssl: c_rehash script allows command injection (CVE-2022-1292)

- openssl: Signer certificate verification returns inaccurate response when using OCSP_NOCHECKS (CVE-2022-1343)

- openssl: OPENSSL_LH_flush() breaks reuse of memory (CVE-2022-1473)

- openssl: the c_rehash script allows command injection (CVE-2022-2068)

- openssl: AES OCB fails to encrypt some bytes (CVE-2022-2097)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Update the RHEL openssl package based on the guidance in RHSA-2022:6224.
