Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2019-12-02 22:40:44 UTC
CVE-2019-13456 (
  A flaw was found in the implementation of EAP-pwd in FreeRADIUS. An attacker
  could initiate several EAP-pwd handshakes to leak information, which can
  then be used to recover the user's WiFi password by performing dictionary
  and brute-force attacks.

@maintainer(s), please cleanup
Comment 5 GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2020-04-17 23:44:34 UTC
CVE-2019-17185 (
  In FreeRADIUS 3.0.x before 3.0.20, the EAP-pwd module used a global OpenSSL
  BN_CTX instance to handle all handshakes. This mean multiple threads use the
  same BN_CTX instance concurrently, resulting in crashes when concurrent
  EAP-pwd handshakes are initiated. This can be abused by an adversary as a
  Denial-of-Service (DoS) attack.
Comment 6 Sam James archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2020-04-17 23:50:39 UTC
Cleanup done. See bug 685840.
