CVEs (cve.mitre.org): CVE-2009-3245

Details

Updated openssl096b packages that fix one security issue are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the
CVE link in the References section.

OpenSSL is a toolkit that implements the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3)
and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) protocols, as well as a
full-strength, general purpose cryptography library.

It was discovered that OpenSSL did not always check the return value of the
bn_wexpand() function. An attacker able to trigger a memory allocation
failure in that function could cause an application using the OpenSSL
library to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2009-3245)

All openssl096b users should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to resolve this issue. For the update to take
effect, all programs using the openssl096b library must be restarted.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
