Debian DSA-2390-1 : openssl - several vulnerabilities

high Nessus Plugin ID 57543
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 Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in OpenSSL, an implementation of TLS and related protocols. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following vulnerabilities :

- CVE-2011-4108 The DTLS implementation performs a MAC check only if certain padding is valid, which makes it easier for remote attackers to recover plaintext via a padding oracle attack.

- CVE-2011-4109 A double free vulnerability when X509_V_FLAG_POLICY_CHECK is enabled, allows remote attackers to cause applications crashes and potentially allow execution of arbitrary code by triggering failure of a policy check.

- CVE-2011-4354 On 32-bit systems, the operations on NIST elliptic curves P-256 and P-384 are not correctly implemented, potentially leaking the private ECC key of a TLS server.
(Regular RSA-based keys are not affected by this vulnerability.)

- CVE-2011-4576 The SSL 3.0 implementation does not properly initialize data structures for block cipher padding, which might allow remote attackers to obtain sensitive information by decrypting the padding data sent by an SSL peer.

- CVE-2011-4619 The Server Gated Cryptography (SGC) implementation in OpenSSL does not properly handle handshake restarts, unnecessarily simplifying CPU exhaustion attacks.

Solution

Upgrade the openssl packages.

For the oldstable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in version 0.9.8g-15+lenny15.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 0.9.8o-4squeeze5.
