Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: OpenSSL: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201412-39)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: December 26, 2014
Bug(s): #494816, #519264, #525468
ID: 201412-39

Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in OpenSSL, the worst of
which could result in Denial of Service or Man-in-the-Middle attacks.


Background

OpenSSL is an Open Source toolkit implementing the Secure Sockets Layer
(SSL v2/v3) and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) as well as a general
purpose cryptography library.


Affected Packages

Package: dev-libs/openssl
Vulnerable: < 1.0.1j
Unaffected: >= 1.0.1j
Unaffected: >= 0.9.8z_p2 < 0.9.9
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in OpenSSL. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.


Impact

A remote attacker may be able to cause a Denial of Service condition,
perform Man-in-the-Middle attacks, obtain sensitive information, or
bypass security restrictions.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All OpenSSL 1.0.1 users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/openssl-1.0.1j"
   
All OpenSSL 0.9.8 users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/openssl-0.9.8z_p2"
   
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying these packages.
