    Synopsis: Updated OpenSSL packages fix vulnerabilities
    Advisory ID: RHSA-2003:291-01
    Issue date: 2003-09-30
    Updated on: 2003-09-30
    Product: Red Hat Linux
    Keywords: ASN.1 ASN1 openSSL
    Cross references:
    Obsoletes: RHSA-2003:101
    CVE Names: CAN-2003-0543 CAN-2003-0544
    - ---------------------------------------------------------------------

    1. Topic:

    Updated OpenSSL packages that fix ASN.1 parsing vulnerabilities are now
    available for Red Hat Linux versions 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, and 8.0.

    2. Relevant releases/architectures:

    Red Hat Linux 7.1 - i386
    Red Hat Linux 7.1 for iSeries (64 bit) - ppc
    Red Hat Linux 7.1 for pSeries (64 bit) - ppc
    Red Hat Linux 7.2 - i386, i686, ia64
    Red Hat Linux 7.3 - i386, i686
    Red Hat Linux 8.0 - i386, i686

    3. Problem description:

    OpenSSL is a commercial-grade, full-featured, open source toolkit that
    implements Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3) and Transport Layer Security
    (TLS v1) protocols, as well as a full-strength general purpose cryptography
    library.

    NISCC testing of implementations of the SSL protocol uncovered two bugs in
    OpenSSL 0.9.6 and OpenSSL 0.9.7. The parsing of unusual ASN.1 tag values
    can cause OpenSSL to crash. A remote attacker could trigger this bug by
    sending a carefully-crafted SSL client certificate to an application. The
    effects of such an attack vary depending on the application targetted;
    against Apache the effects are limited, as the attack would only cause
    child processes to die and be replaced. An attack against other
    applications that use OpenSSL could result in a Denial of Service. The
    Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
    the names CAN-2003-0543 and CAN-2003-0544 to this issue.

    Red Hat Linux versions 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, and 8.0 contain OpenSSL 0.9.6 and are
    therefore vulnerable to this issue.

    These erratum packages contain a patch provided by the OpenSSL group that
    protects against this issue.

    Because server applications are affected by this issue, users are advised
    to either restart all services that use OpenSSL functionality or reboot
    their systems after installing these updates.

    Red Hat would like to thank NISCC and Stephen Henson for their work on this
    vulnerability.

    These packages also include a patch from OpenSSL 0.9.6f which removes
    the calls to abort the process in certain circumstances. Red Hat would
    like to thank Patrik Hornik for notifying us of this issue.

    4. Solution:

    Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
    relevant to your system have been applied.

    To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

    rpm -Fvh [filenames]

    where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those
    RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are
    not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you
    can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the
    desired RPMs.

    Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network. Many
    people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network,
    launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

    up2date

    This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
    RPMs being upgraded on your system.

    If up2date fails to connect to Red Hat Network due to SSL Certificate
    Errors, you need to install a version of the up2date client with an updated
    certificate. The latest version of up2date is available from the Red Hat
    FTP site and may also be downloaded directly from the RHN website:

    https://rhn.redhat.com/help/latest-up2date.pxt
