SuSE 11.2 Security Update : OpenSSL (SAT Patch Number 7548)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 65718


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


OpenSSL has been updated to fix several security issues :

- Avoid the openssl CRIME attack by disabling SSL compression by default. Setting the environment variable 'OPENSSL_NO_DEFAULT_ZLIB' to 'no' enables compression again. (CVE-2012-4929)

- Timing attacks against TLS could be used by physically local attackers to gain access to transmitted plain text or private keymaterial. This issue is also known as the 'Lucky-13' issue. (CVE-2013-0169)

- A OCSP invalid key denial of service issue was fixed.


Apply SAT patch number 7548.
