Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2013-10-07 00:12:12 UTC
CVE-2013-5915 (
  The RSA-CRT implementation in PolarSSL before 1.2.9 does not properly
  perform Montgomery multiplication, which might allow remote attackers to
  conduct a timing side-channel attack and retrieve RSA private keys.
Comment 1 Yury German Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev 2013-10-07 15:02:25 UTC
Version Prior to PolarSSL 1.2.9 and 1.3.0 are affected.

PolarSSL recommends upgrade to 1.3.0 (In URL)"We strongly advise you to consider upgrading to the 1.3 branch if outside parties are present or can connect to your network."
Comment 2 Thomas Sachau gentoo-dev 2013-10-07 18:16:47 UTC
polarssl-1.3.0 added
Comment 3 Yury German Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev 2013-10-08 16:20:20 UTC
Thomas are you ready to stabilize 1.3.0?

Comment 15 Julian Ospald 2013-11-22 13:57:38 UTC
you broke a stable reverse dep (media-sound/umurmur) and did not notify me about this

do people still not test reverse deps of libraries? Sure this is a security bug. But there would have been a solution, like masking "polarssl" useflag in media-sound/umurmur.
