Re: FreeBSD Security Advisory FreeBSD-SA-07:08.openssl




Hi,

I have applied the patch on a FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE system and several of the services (courier-imap, postfix) on the machine stopped.

I got the following error:

/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: /usr/lib/libssl.so.4: Undefined symbol "EVP_idea_cbc"


I compared SSL libraries on the patched system with the same, but on unpatched system. The difference, i found, is an extra library in /usr/lib, on the patched system -- ``/usr/lib/libssl_p.a''.

The searched symbol "EVP_idea_cbc" is exactly in this extra library, but it seems the library is not loaded/searched for symbols.

Could someone point me how to prevent building of this extra library and keeping the same number of SSL libraries (of course patched) as of before patching the system ?

Thanks in advance!

Vladimir



The symbol "EVP_idea_cbc" is in this extra library.

CVE Name: CVE-2007-5135

For general information regarding FreeBSD Security Advisories,
including descriptions of the fields above, security branches, and the
following sections, please visit <URL:http://security.FreeBSD.org/>.

I. Background

FreeBSD includes software from the OpenSSL Project. The OpenSSL Project is
a collaborative effort to develop a robust, commercial-grade, full-featured,
and Open Source toolkit implementing the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3)
and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) protocols as well as a full-strength
general purpose cryptography library.

II. Problem Description

A buffer overflow addressed in FreeBSD-SA-06:23.openssl has been found
to be incorrectly fixed.

III. Impact

For applications using the SSL_get_shared_ciphers() function, the
buffer overflow could allow an attacker to crash or potentially
execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running the
application.

IV. Workaround

No workaround is available, but only applications using the
SSL_get_shared_ciphers() function are affected.

V. Solution

Perform one of the following:

1) Upgrade your vulnerable system to 5-STABLE, or 6-STABLE, or to the
RELENG_6_2, RELENG_6_1, or RELENG_5_5 security branch dated after the
correction date.

2) To patch your present system:

The following patch have been verified to apply to FreeBSD 5.5, 6.1,
and 6.2 systems.

a) Download the relevant patch from the location below, and verify the
detached PGP signature using your PGP utility.

# fetch http://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-07:08/openssl.patch
# fetch http://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-07:08/openssl.patch.asc

b) Execute the following commands as root:

# cd /usr/src
# patch < /path/to/patch
# cd /usr/src/secure/lib/libssl
# make obj && make depend && make && make install

VI. Correction details

The following list contains the revision numbers of each file that was
corrected in FreeBSD.
