Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : openssl (MDVSA-2009:120)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 38864

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: 4.4

Synopsis

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

Description

Multiple security vulnerabilities has been identified and fixed in OpenSSL :

The dtls1_buffer_record function in ssl/d1_pkt.c in OpenSSL 0.9.8k and earlier 0.9.8 versions allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a large series of future epoch DTLS records that are buffered in a queue, aka DTLS record buffer limitation bug. (CVE-2009-1377)

Multiple memory leaks in the dtls1_process_out_of_seq_message function in ssl/d1_both.c in OpenSSL 0.9.8k and earlier 0.9.8 versions allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via DTLS records that (1) are duplicates or (2) have sequence numbers much greater than current sequence numbers, aka DTLS fragment handling memory leak. (CVE-2009-1378)

The updated packages have been patched to prevent this.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
