|Summary:||The remote host is missing an update for the 'openssl'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.|
The remote host is missing an update for the 'openssl'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
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.
An uninitialized variable use flaw was found in OpenSSL. This flaw could
cause an application using the OpenSSL Certificate Revocation List (CRL)
checking functionality to incorrectly accept a CRL that has a nextUpdate
date in the past. (CVE-2011-3207)
All OpenSSL users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to resolve this issue. For the update to take effect, all
services linked to the OpenSSL library must be restarted, or the system
openssl on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)
Please Install the Updated Packages.
