CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE   : openssl
SUMMARY   : Remote denial of service vulnerabilities
DATE      : 2004-03-31 16:49:00
ID        : CLA-2004:834
RELEVANT
RELEASES  : 8, 9

- -------------------------------------------------------------------------

DESCRIPTION
 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's used (as a library) by
 several projects, like Apache, OpenSSH, Bind, OpenLDAP and many
 others clients and servers programs.
 
 This update fixes three denial of service vulnerabilities that affect
 OpenSSL versions distributed with Conectiva Linux:
 
 CAN-2004-0079: Null-pointer assignment during SSL handshake[3]. A
 remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by performing a
 specially crafted SSL handshake that will crash the application. This
 vulnerability was discovered by the OpenSSL team using the
 Codenomicon TLS Test Tool and affects OpenSSL versions distributed
 with Conectiva Linux 8 (0.9.6c) and 9 (0.9.7a).
 
 CAN-2004-0081: Infinite loop when handling unknown TLS message
 types[4]. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by sending
 specially crafted TLS messages, causing the application to enter an
 infinite loop. Conectiva Linux 9 (OpenSSL-0.9.7a) is not vulnerable
 to this issue.
 
 CAN-2004-0112: Out-of-bounds read with Kerberos ciphersuites[5].
 Stephen Henson discovered a vulnerability in the SSL/TLS handshaking
 code when using Kerberos ciphersuites. A remote attacker can exploit
 it to crash an application which uses Kerberos ciphersuites. The
 OpenSSL version distributed with Conectiva Linux 8 (OpenSSL-0.9.6c)
 is not vulnerable to this issue and there are no known applications
 using Kerberos ciphersuites in Conectiva Linux 9.


SOLUTION
 All openssl users should upgrade.
 
 Please notice that in order to complete the upgrade process, you must
 restart all running aplications that are linked to openssl libraries
 after the new packages are installed. You can see a list of such
 applications using the lsof utility, as seen below:
 
 # lsof | egrep '(libcrypto|libssl)'
 
 Services (like apache and openssh daemons) can be restarted using the
 "service" command. For example:
 
 # service httpd restart
 # service sshd restart
