Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : openssl (MDVSA-2014:158)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 77097
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in openssl :

A flaw in OBJ_obj2txt may cause pretty printing functions such as X509_name_oneline, X509_name_print_ex et al. to leak some information from the stack. Applications may be affected if they echo pretty printing output to the attacker. OpenSSL SSL/TLS clients and servers themselves are not affected (CVE-2014-3508).

If a multithreaded client connects to a malicious server using a resumed session and the server sends an ec point format extension it could write up to 255 bytes to freed memory (CVE-2014-3509).

An attacker can force an error condition which causes openssl to crash whilst processing DTLS packets due to memory being freed twice. This can be exploited through a Denial of Service attack (CVE-2014-3505).

An attacker can force openssl to consume large amounts of memory whilst processing DTLS handshake messages. This can be exploited through a Denial of Service attack (CVE-2014-3506).

By sending carefully crafted DTLS packets an attacker could cause openssl to leak memory. This can be exploited through a Denial of Service attack (CVE-2014-3507).

OpenSSL DTLS clients enabling anonymous (EC)DH ciphersuites are subject to a denial of service attack. A malicious server can crash the client with a NULL pointer dereference (read) by specifying an anonymous (EC)DH ciphersuite and sending carefully crafted handshake messages (CVE-2014-3510).

The updated packages have been upgraded to the 1.0.0n version where these security flaws has been fixed.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
