Debian DLA-637-1 : openssl security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 93690

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in OpenSSL :

CVE-2016-2177

Guido Vranken discovered that OpenSSL uses undefined pointer arithmetic. Additional information can be found at https://www.openssl.org/blog/blog/2016/06/27/undefined-pointer-arithme tic/

CVE-2016-2178

Cesar Pereida, Billy Brumley and Yuval Yarom discovered a timing leak in the DSA code.

CVE-2016-2179 / CVE-2016-2181

Quan Luo and the OCAP audit team discovered denial of service vulnerabilities in DTLS.

CVE-2016-2180 / CVE-2016-2182 / CVE-2016-6303

Shi Lei discovered an out-of-bounds memory read in TS_OBJ_print_bio() and an out-of-bounds write in BN_bn2dec() and MDC2_Update().

CVE-2016-2183

DES-based cipher suites are demoted from the HIGH group to MEDIUM as a mitigation for the SWEET32 attack.

CVE-2016-6302

Shi Lei discovered that the use of SHA512 in TLS session tickets is susceptible to denial of service.

CVE-2016-6304

Shi Lei discovered that excessively large OCSP status request may result in denial of service via memory exhaustion.

CVE-2016-6306

Shi Lei discovered that missing message length validation when parsing certificates may potentially result in denial of service.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.1t-1+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your openssl and libssl1.0.0 packages.

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

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
