OpenSSL < 0.9.8o / 1.0.0a Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5559

Synopsis

The remote web server is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

Versions of OpenSSL earlier than 0.9.8o and 1.0.0a are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- CMS structures containing 'OriginatorInfo' are mishandled which can cause the application to write to invalid memory addresses or free up memory twice. Note that this only affects OpenSSL with CMS code present. (CVE-2010-0742)

- When verification recovery fails for RSA keys, an uninitialized buffer with an undefined length is returned instead of an error code. Note that this only affects OpenSSL 1.0.0. (CVE-2010-1633)

Solution

Upgrade to OpenSSL 0.9.8o, 1.0.0, or later.
