SuSE 10 Security Update : compat-openssl097g (ZYPP Patch Number 5055)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 31392


The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.


This update of openssl fixes a off-by-one buffer overflow in function SSL_get_shared_ciphers(). This vulnerability potentially allows remote code execution; depending on memory layout of the process.

We released updates for openssl already, but an update for the compat 0.9.7g openssl libraries was missing and is provided with this patch.
