SUSE SLED12 / SLES12 Security Update : openssl (SUSE-SU-2014:1524-1) (POODLE)

High Nessus Plugin ID 83648

Synopsis

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

openssl was updated to fix four security issues.

These security issues were fixed :

- SRTP Memory Leak (CVE-2014-3513).

- Session Ticket Memory Leak (CVE-2014-3567).

- Fixed incomplete no-ssl3 build option (CVE-2014-3568).

- Add support for TLS_FALLBACK_SCSV (CVE-2014-3566).

NOTE: This update alone DOESN'T FIX the POODLE SSL protocol vulnerability. OpenSSL only adds downgrade detection support for client applications. See https://www.suse.com/support/kb/doc.php?id=7015773 for mitigations.

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.
