Category:Denial of Service
Title:OpenSSL 0.9.6e DoS Vulnerability
Summary:OpenSSL is prone to a denial of service (DoS) vulnerability.
OpenSSL is prone to a denial of service (DoS) vulnerability.

Vulnerability Insight:
The use of assertions when detecting buffer overflow attacks allowed
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) by sending certain messages to cause OpenSSL to
abort from a failed assertion, as demonstrated using SSLv2 CLIENT_MASTER_KEY messages, which were not
properly handled in s2_srvr.c.

Affected Software/OS:
OpenSSL version 0.9.6e.

Update to version 0.9.6f or later.
