Above is a worst case list. Packages known to only use libcrypo without libssl are not affected and were already omitted from the list. Description: According to an OpenSSL [0] security advisory [1], a denial of service vulnerabilities exist in OpenSSL versions 0.9.6c to 0.9.6l inclusive and versions 0.9.7a to 0.9.7c inclusive. Testing performed by the OpenSSL group uncovered a null-pointer assignment in the do_change_cipher_spec() function. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) project assigned the id CAN-2004-0079 [2] to the problem. Stephen Henson discovered a flaw in SSL/TLS handshaking code when using Kerberos ciphersuites. The OpenPKG packages make no use of this functionality but the patch was included anyway. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) project assigned the id CAN-2004-0112 [3] to the problem. Please check whether you are affected by running "<prefix>/bin/rpm -q openssl". If you have the "openssl" package installed and its version is affected (see above), we recommend that you immediately upgrade it (see Solution) and it's dependent packages (see above), if any, too. [4][5] Solution: Select the updated source RPM appropriate for your OpenPKG release [6][7], fetch it from the OpenPKG FTP service [8][9] or a mirror location, verify its integrity [10], build a corresponding binary RPM from it [4] and update your OpenPKG installation by applying the binary RPM [5]. For the most recent release OpenPKG 2.0, perform the following operations to permanently fix the security problem (for other releases adjust accordingly). $ ftp ftp.openpkg.org ftp> bin ftp> cd release/2.0/UPD ftp> get openssl-0.9.7c-2.0.1.src.rpm ftp> bye $ <prefix>/bin/openpkg rpm -v --checksig openssl-0.9.7c-2.0.1.src.rpm $ <prefix>/bin/openpkg rpm --rebuild openssl-0.9.7c-2.0.1.src.rpm $ su - # <prefix>/bin/openpkg rpm -Fvh <prefix>/RPM/PKG/openssl-0.9.7c-2.0.1.*.rpm Additionally, we recommend that you rebuild and reinstall all dependent packages (see above), if any, too.
