High Nessus Plugin ID 75383


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


The openssl library was updated to version 1.0.1h fixing various security issues and bugs :

Security issues fixed :

- CVE-2014-0224: Fix for SSL/TLS MITM flaw. An attacker using a carefully crafted handshake can force the use of weak keying material in OpenSSL SSL/TLS clients and servers.

- CVE-2014-0221: Fix DTLS recursion flaw. By sending an invalid DTLS handshake to an OpenSSL DTLS client the code can be made to recurse eventually crashing in a DoS attack.

- CVE-2014-0195: Fix DTLS invalid fragment vulnerability.
A buffer overrun attack can be triggered by sending invalid DTLS fragments to an OpenSSL DTLS client or server. This is potentially exploitable to run arbitrary code on a vulnerable client or server.

- CVE-2014-3470: Fix bug in TLS code where clients enable anonymous ECDH ciphersuites are subject to a denial of service attack.
