New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201404-07 (OpenSSL: Information Disclosure)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in OpenSSL:
OpenSSL incorrectly handles memory in the TLS heartbeat extension, leading to information disclosure of 64kb per request, possibly including private keys (“Heartbleed bug”, OpenSSL 1.0.1 only, CVE-2014-0160).
The Montgomery ladder implementation of OpenSSL improperly handles swap operations (CVE-2014-0076).
A remote attacker could exploit these issues to disclose information, including private keys or other sensitive information, or perform side-channel attacks to obtain ECDSA nonces.
Disabling the tls-heartbeat USE flag (enabled by default) provides a workaround for the CVE-2014-0160 issue.
SolutionAll OpenSSL users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=dev-libs/openssl-1.0.1g' Note: All services using OpenSSL to provide TLS connections have to be restarted for the update to take effect. Utilities like app-admin/lib_users can aid in identifying programs using OpenSSL.
As private keys may have been compromised using the Heartbleed attack, it is recommended to regenerate them.
