Medium Nessus Plugin ID 44127
SynopsisThe remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.
DescriptionIncorrect use of an openssl cleanup function can lead to memory leaks in applications. For example an ssl enabled web server such as apache that uses php, curl and openssl leaks memory if a SIGHUP signal was sent to apache. The openssl cleanup function was made more robust to avoid memory leaks (CVE-2009-4355).
Additionally a problem with creating pkcs12 files was fixed.
SolutionUpdate the affected openssl-CVE-2009-4355.patch packages.
