Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : tor (MDVSA-2014:123)

High Nessus Plugin ID 74481

Synopsis

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.

Description

Updated tor packages fix multiple vulnerabilities :

Tor before 0.2.4.20, when OpenSSL 1.x is used in conjunction with a certain HardwareAccel setting on Intel Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge platforms, does not properly generate random numbers for relay identity keys and hidden-service identity keys, which might make it easier for remote attackers to bypass cryptographic protection mechanisms via unspecified vectors (CVE-2013-7295).

Update to version 0.2.4.22 solves these major and security problems :

- Block authority signing keys that were used on authorities vulnerable to the heartbleed bug in OpenSSL (CVE-2014-0160).

- Fix a memory leak that could occur if a microdescriptor parse fails during the tokenizing step.

- The relay ciphersuite list is now generated automatically based on uniform criteria, and includes all OpenSSL ciphersuites with acceptable strength and forward secrecy.

- Relays now trust themselves to have a better view than clients of which TLS ciphersuites are better than others.

- Clients now try to advertise the same list of ciphersuites as Firefox 28.

For other changes see the upstream change log

Solution

Update the affected tor package.
