SuSE 11 Security Update : OpenSSL (SAT Patch Number 1810)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 44131



The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.


Incorrect 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)


Apply SAT patch number 1810.
