Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.66746
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-884-1 (openssl)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-884-1 (openssl)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to openssl
announced via advisory USN-884-1.

Details follow:

It was discovered that OpenSSL did not correctly free unused memory in
certain situations. A remote attacker could trigger this flaw in services
that used SSL, causing the service to use all available system memory,
leading to a denial of service.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
libssl0.9.8 0.9.8a-7ubuntu0.11

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
libssl0.9.8 0.9.8g-4ubuntu3.9

Ubuntu 8.10:
libssl0.9.8 0.9.8g-10.1ubuntu2.6

Ubuntu 9.04:
libssl0.9.8 0.9.8g-15ubuntu3.4

Ubuntu 9.10:
libssl0.9.8 0.9.8g-16ubuntu3.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart any applications
using OpenSSL, especially Apache, to effect the necessary changes.
