medium Nessus Plugin ID 83620
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 SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

OpenSSL has been updated to fix an attack on ECDSA Nonces.

Using the FLUSH+RELOAD Cache Side-channel Attack the Nonces could be recovered. (CVE-2014-0076)

The update also enables use of SHA-2 family certificate verification of X.509 certificates used in todays SSL certificate infrastructure.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected OpenSSL packages
