Synopsis
========

OpenSSL fails to properly validate PKCS #1 v1.5 signatures.

Background
==========

OpenSSL is a toolkit implementing the Secure Sockets Layer, Transport
Layer Security protocols and a general-purpose cryptography library.
The x86 emulation base libraries for AMD64 contain a vulnerable version
of OpenSSL.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package                  /  Vulnerable  /              Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  openssl                      < 0.9.7k                   >= 0.9.7k
  2  emul-x86-linux-baselibs       < 2.5.2                    >= 2.5.2
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     # Package 2 [app-emulation/emul-x86-linux-baselibs] only applies
       to AMD64 users.

     NOTE: Any packages listed without architecture tags apply to all
           architectures...

Description
===========

Daniel Bleichenbacher discovered that it might be possible to forge
signatures signed by RSA keys with the exponent of 3.

Impact
======

Since several CAs are using an exponent of 3 it might be possible for
an attacker to create a key with a false CA signature.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All OpenSSL users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/openssl-0.9.7k"

All AMD64 x86 emulation base libraries users should upgrade to the
latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-emulation/emul-x86-linux-baselibs-2.5.2"
