SuSE 11.2 Security Update: libopenssl-devel (2009-11-13)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 42856
SynopsisThe remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.
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)
SolutionUpdate the affected openssl packages.
