Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2011-09-06 18:41:11 UTC
From  secunia security advisor at $URL.

1) An error within OpenSSL's internal certificate verification can lead to OpenSSL accepting CRL (Certificate Revocation Lists) with a "nextUpdate" field set to a date in the past.

2) An error within the implementation of ephemeral ECDH ciphersuites can be exploited to crash a vulnerable server by sending handshake messages within an invalid order.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires that the server enabled and supports the ECDH ciphersuites.
The vulnerabilities are reported in versions 1.0.0 through 1.0.0d.

Update to version 1.0.0e.

1.0.0e now in the tree
Comment 2 Peter Volkov (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-09-07 07:44:22 UTC
Arch teams, please, stabilize openssl-1.0.0e. TIA.
Comment 3 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2011-09-07 08:44:28 UTC
tested many rdeps

amd64 ok

Looks ok also for me on x86

Thanks, everyone. Added to existing GLSA request.

CVE-2011-3210 (
  The ephemeral ECDH ciphersuite functionality in OpenSSL 0.9.8 through 0.9.8s
  and 1.0.x before 1.0.0e does not ensure thread safety during processing of
  handshake messages, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
  service (application crash) via out-of-order messages that violate the TLS

CVE-2011-3207 (
  crypto/x509/x509_vfy.c in OpenSSL 1.0.x before 1.0.0e does not initialize
  certain structure members, which makes it easier for remote attackers to
  bypass CRL validation by using a nextUpdate value corresponding to a time in
  the past.
