tor: poor random number generation

Package(s):tor CVE #(s):CVE-2013-7295
Created:January 28, 2014 Updated:February 13, 2014
Description: From the bug report:

Tor fixes potentially poor random number generation for users who 1) use OpenSSL 1.0.0 or later, 2) set "HardwareAccel 1" in their torrc file, 3) have "Sandy Bridge" or "Ivy Bridge" Intel processors, and 4) have no state file in their DataDirectory (as would happen on first start). Users who generated relay or hidden service identity keys in such a situation should discard them and generate new ones.
