SuSE 10 Security Update : OpenSSL (ZYPP Patch Number 6655)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 49908
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.

Description

The 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)

Solution

Apply ZYPP patch number 6655.
