Subject:  [RHSA-2005:829-00] Important: openssl security update
Date:  Wed, 2 Nov 2005 08:24:16 -0500

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 - --------------------------------------------------------------------- Red Hat Security Advisory Synopsis: Important: openssl security update Advisory ID: RHSA-2005:829-00 Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2005-829.html Issue date: 2005-11-02 Updated on: 2005-11-02 Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux CVE Names: CVE-2004-0079 - --------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. Summary: Updated OpenSSL packages that fix a remote denial of service vulnerability are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. 2. Relevant releases/architectures: Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (Advanced Server) version 2.1 - i386, ia64 Red Hat Linux Advanced Workstation 2.1 - ia64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 2.1 - i386 Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 2.1 - i386 3. Problem description: The OpenSSL toolkit implements Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3), Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) protocols, and serves as a full-strength general purpose cryptography library. Testing performed by the OpenSSL group using the Codenomicon TLS Test Tool uncovered a null-pointer assignment in the do_change_cipher_spec() function. A remote attacker could perform a carefully crafted SSL/TLS handshake against a server that uses the OpenSSL library in such a way as to cause OpenSSL to crash. Depending on the server this could lead to a denial of service. (CVE-2004-0079) This issue was reported as not affecting OpenSSL versions prior to 0.9.6c, and testing with the Codenomicon Test Tool showed that OpenSSL 0.9.6b as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 did not crash. However, an alternative reproducer has been written which shows that this issue does affect versions of OpenSSL prior to 0.9.6c. Users of OpenSSL are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a patch provided by the OpenSSL group that protects against this issue. NOTE: Because server applications are affected by this issue, users are advised to either restart all services that use OpenSSL functionality or restart their systems after installing these updates. 4. Solution: Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant to your system have been applied. To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run: rpm -Fvh [filenames] where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the desired RPMs. Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network. Many people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system. 5.
