Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : openssl (cve_2012_0884_cryptographic_issue1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 80716


The remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party software.


The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address security updates :

- The implementation of Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) and PKCS #7 in OpenSSL before 0.9.8u and 1.x before 1.0.0h does not properly restrict certain oracle behavior, which makes it easier for context-dependent attackers to decrypt data via a Million Message Attack (MMA) adaptive chosen ciphertext attack. (CVE-2012-0884)


Upgrade to Solaris 11/11 SRU 7.5.
