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: 5.9

Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

A buffer overflow condition within the SSL_get_shared_ciphers() function and a DoS condition known as 'parasitic public keys' have been fixed. The later problem allowed attackers to trick the OpenSSL engine to spend an extraordinary amount of time to process public keys. The following CAN numbers have been assigned: CVE-2006-2937, CVE-2006-2940, CVE-2006-3738 and CVE-2006-4343.

Solution

Update the affected openssl packages.
