Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2018-04-06 12:10:24 UTC
CVE-2018-8970 (https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2018-8970):
  The int_x509_param_set_hosts function in lib/libcrypto/x509/x509_vpm.c in
  LibreSSL 2.7.0 before 2.7.1 does not support a certain special case of a
  zero name length, which causes silent omission of hostname verification, and
  consequently allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof servers and obtain
  sensitive information via a crafted certificate. NOTE: the LibreSSL
  documentation indicates that this special case is supported, but the
  BoringSSL documentation does not.

Only an unkeyworded version was affected. Fixed version available, repository is clean.

Yeah but I still removed 2.7.0 and 2.7.1.  Only 2.7.2 is still on the tree which is not vulnerable.
