Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : openssl (MDKSA-2006:161)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 23905
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Daniel Bleichenbacher recently described an attack on PKCS #1 v1.5 signatures where an RSA key with a small exponent used could be vulnerable to forgery of a PKCS #1 v1.5 signature signed by that key.

Any software using OpenSSL to verify X.509 certificates is potentially vulnerable to this issue, as well as any other use of PKCS #1 v1.5, including software uses OpenSSL for SSL or TLS.

Updated packages are patched to address this issue.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
