----------------------------------------------------------------------
Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Updated OpenSSL packages fix vulnerabilities
Advisory ID: RHSA-2004:120-01
Issue date: 2004-03-17
Updated on: 2004-03-17
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Keywords: DoS

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

1. Topic:

Updated OpenSSL packages that fix several remote denial of service vulnerabilities are available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, i686, ia64, ppc, ppc64, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, i686
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - i386, i686, ia64, x86_64

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 in OpenSSL 0.9.6c-0.9.6k and 0.9.7a-0.9.7c. 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 application this could lead to a denial of service. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0079 to this issue.

Stephen Henson discovered a flaw in SSL/TLS handshaking code when using Kerberos ciphersuites in OpenSSL 0.9.7a-0.9.7c. A remote attacker could perform a carefully crafted SSL/TLS handshake against a server configured to use Kerberos ciphersuites in such a way as to cause OpenSSL to crash. Most applications have no ability to use Kerberos ciphersuites and will therefore be unaffected by this issue. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0112 to
this issue.

Testing performed by the OpenSSL group using the Codenomicon TLS Test Tool uncovered a bug in older versions of OpenSSL 0.9.6 prior to 0.9.6d that may lead to a denial of service attack (infinite loop). The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0081 to this issue. This issue affects only the OpenSSL compatibility packages shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.

These updated packages contain patches provided by the OpenSSL group that protect against these issues.

Additionally, the version of libica included in the OpenSSL packages has been updated to 1.3.5. This only affects IBM s390 and IBM eServer zSeries customers and is required for the latest openCryptoki packages.

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.

If up2date fails to connect to Red Hat Network due to SSL Certificate Errors, you need to install a version of the up2date client with an updated certificate. The latest version of up2date is available from the Red Hat FTP site and may also be downloaded directly from the RHN website:

https://rhn.redhat.com/help/latest-up2date.pxt

These packages are GPG signed by Red Hat for security. Our key is available from https://www.redhat.com/security/keys.html

You can verify each package with the following command:

rpm --checksig -v <filename>

If you only wish to verify that each package has not been corrupted or tampered with, examine only the md5sum with the following command:

md5sum <filename>
