Package : openssl
Version : 1.1.1n-0+deb10u6
CVE ID : CVE-2023-3446 CVE-2023-3817

Two vunerabilities were discovered in openssl, a Secure Sockets Layer toolkit:

CVE-2023-3446, CVE-2023-3817

Excessively long DH key or parameter checks can cause significant delays
in applications using DH_check(), DH_check_ex(), or EVP_PKEY_param_check()
functions, potentially leading to Denial of Service attacks when keys or
parameters are obtained from untrusted sources.

For Debian 10 buster, these problems have been fixed in version
1.1.1n-0+deb10u6.

We recommend that you upgrade your openssl packages.
