Updated openssl packages that fix multiple security issues are nowavailable for Red Hat Storage 2.1.Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Moderate securityimpact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which givedetailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from theCVE links in the References section.

OpenSSL is a toolkit that implements the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3)and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) protocols, as well as afull-strength, general purpose cryptography library.An invalid pointer use flaw was found in OpenSSL’s ASN1_TYPE_cmp()function. A remote attacker could crash a TLS/SSL client or server usingOpenSSL via a specially crafted X.509 certificate when theattacker-supplied certificate was verified by the application.(CVE-2015-0286)An integer underflow flaw, leading to a buffer overflow, was found in theway OpenSSL decoded malformed Base64-encoded inputs. An attacker able tomake an application using OpenSSL decode a specially crafted Base64-encodedinput (such as a PEM file) could use this flaw to cause the application tocrash. Note: this flaw is not exploitable via the TLS/SSL protocol becausethe data being transferred is not Base64-encoded. (CVE-2015-0292)A denial of service flaw was found in the way OpenSSL handled SSLv2handshake messages. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause aTLS/SSL server using OpenSSL to exit on a failed assertion if it had boththe SSLv2 protocol and EXPORT-grade cipher suites enabled. (CVE-2015-0293)A use-after-free flaw was found in the way OpenSSL imported malformedElliptic Curve private keys. A specially crafted key file could cause anapplication using OpenSSL to crash when imported. (CVE-2015-0209)An out-of-bounds write flaw was found in the way OpenSSL reused certainASN.1 structures. A remote attacker could possibly use a specially craftedASN.1 structure that, when parsed by an application, would cause thatapplication to crash. (CVE-2015-0287)A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in OpenSSL’s X.509 certificatehandling implementation. A specially crafted X.509 certificate could causean application using OpenSSL to crash if the application attempted toconvert the certificate to a certificate request. (CVE-2015-0288)A NULL pointer dereference was found in the way OpenSSL handled certainPKCS#7 inputs. An attacker able to make an application using OpenSSLverify, decrypt, or parse a specially crafted PKCS#7 input could cause thatapplication to crash. TLS/SSL clients and servers using OpenSSL were notaffected by this flaw. (CVE-2015-0289)Red Hat would like to thank the OpenSSL project for reportingCVE-2015-0286, CVE-2015-0287, CVE-2015-0288, CVE-2015-0289, CVE-2015-0292,and CVE-2015-0293.

For the update to takeeffect, all services linked to the OpenSSL library must be restarted, orthe system rebooted.
