SuSE 11 Security Update : libopenssl (SAT Patch Number 1540)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 42830
SynopsisThe remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThe TLS/SSLv3 protocol as implemented in openssl prior to this update was not able to associate data to a renegotiated connection. This allowed man-in-the-middle attackers to inject HTTP requests in a HTTPS session without being noticed. For example Apache's mod_ssl was vulnerable to this kind of attack because it uses openssl. Please note that renegotiation will be disabled by this update and may cause problems in some cases. (CVE-2009-3555: CVSS v2 Base Score: 6.4)
