Debian DSA-882-1 : openssl095 - cryptographic weakness

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 22748

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.

VPR Score: 3.4


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


Yutaka Oiwa discovered a vulnerability in the Open Secure Socket Layer (OpenSSL) library that can allow an attacker to perform active protocol-version rollback attacks that could lead to the use of the weaker SSL 2.0 protocol even though both ends support SSL 3.0 or TLS 1.0.

The following matrix explains which version in which distribution has this problem corrected.

oldstable (woody) stable (sarge) unstable (sid) openssl 0.9.6c-2.woody.8 0.9.7e-3sarge1 0.9.8-3 openssl094 0.9.4-6.woody.4 n/a n/a openssl095 0.9.5a-6.woody.6 n/a n/a openssl096 n/a 0.9.6m-1sarge1 n/a openssl097 n/a n/a 0.9.7g-5
