SuSE 10 Security Update : OpenSSL (ZYPP Patch Number 6654)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 42841
SynopsisThe remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.
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)
