Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.67078
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2010:0173
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2010:0173.

OpenSSL is a toolkit that implements the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3)
and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) protocols, as well as a
full-strength, general purpose cryptography library.

It was discovered that OpenSSL did not always check the return value of the
bn_wexpand() function. An attacker able to trigger a memory allocation
failure in that function could cause an application using the OpenSSL
library to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2009-3245)

All openssl096b users should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to resolve this issue. For the update to take
effect, all programs using the openssl096b library must be restarted.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
