Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51466
Category:Conectiva Local Security Checks
Title:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2003:751
Summary:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2003:751
Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory CLA-2003:751.

OpenSSL[1] implements the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3) and
Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) protocols as well as full-strength
general purpose cryptography functions. It is used (as a library) by
several projects, like Apache, OpenSSH, Bind, OpenLDAP and many
others clients and servers programs.

NISCC[2] developed a test suit to verify the behavior of SSL and TLS
implementations when presented with malformed client certificates. As
a result of this test, the following vulnerabilities[3,4] were found
in the OpenSSL implementation:

- Vulnerabilities in the handling of malformed ASN.1 tags
(CVE-2003-0543[5] and CVE-2003-0544[6]). Because of a flaw in the
handling of ASN.1 tag values, an out-of-bounds read can be triggered
in some situations. A remote attacker can exploit these
vulnerabilities to cause a denial of service condition.

- Stack corruption in the handling of rejected ASN.1 encodings
(CVE-2003-0545[7]). A remote attacker may exploit this vulnerability
to cause a denial of service condition and potentially execute
arbitrary code. This vulnerability does not affect the OpenSSL
versions distributed with Conectiva Linux 7.0 and 8 (OpenSSL-0.9.6).

Additionally, this update includes fixes for a bug which causes
OpenSSL to parse a client certificate when it should reject it as a
protocol error.


Solution:
The apt tool can be used to perform RPM package upgrades
by running 'apt-get update' followed by 'apt-get upgrade'
