Subject: Security ERRATA Moderate: openssl on SL5.x, SL6.x i386/x86_64
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.scientific.errata
Date: Wednesday 30th May 2012 22:16:54 UTC (over 4 years ago)
Synopsis:    Moderate: openssl security and bug fix update
Issue Date:  2012-05-29
CVE Numbers: CVE-2012-2333

An integer underflow flaw, leading to a buffer over-read, was found in the
way OpenSSL handled DTLS (Datagram Transport Layer Security) application
data record lengths when using a block cipher in CBC (cipher-blockchaining)
mode. A malicious DTLS client or server could use this flaw to crash its
DTLS connection peer. (CVE-2012-2333)

On SL6 this update also fixes an uninitialized variable use bug, introduced
by the fix for CVE-2012-0884. This bug could possibly cause an attempt to
create an encrypted message in the CMS (Cryptographic Message Syntax)
format to fail. For the update to take effect all services linked to the
OpenSSL library must be restarted.
