Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : openssl (MDVSA-2014:067)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 73443

Synopsis

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Updated openssl packages fix security vulnerability :

The Montgomery ladder implementation in OpenSSL through 1.0.0l does not ensure that certain swap operations have a constant-time behavior, which makes it easier for local users to obtain ECDSA nonces via a FLUSH+RELOAD cache side-channel attack (CVE-2014-0076).

Solution

Update the affected packages.
