               Fedora Legacy Update Advisory

Synopsis:          Updated openssl packages fix security issues
Advisory ID:       FLSA:166939
Issue date:        2005-12-17
Product:           Red Hat Linux, Fedora Core
Keywords:          Bugfix
CVE Names:         CVE-2004-0079 CVE-2005-0109 CVE-2005-2969
---------------------------------------------------------------------


---------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Topic:

Updated OpenSSL packages that fix security issues are now available.

OpenSSL is a 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.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.3 - i386
Red Hat Linux 9 - i386
Fedora Core 1 - i386
Fedora Core 2 - i386

3. Problem description:

OpenSSL contained a software work-around for a bug in SSL handling in
Microsoft Internet Explorer version 3.0.2. This work-around is enabled
in most servers that use OpenSSL to provide support for SSL and TLS.
Yutaka Oiwa discovered that this work-around could allow an attacker,
acting as a "man in the middle" to force an SSL connection to use SSL
2.0 rather than a stronger protocol such as SSL 3.0 or TLS 1.0. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2005-2969 to this issue.

A bug was fixed in the way OpenSSL creates DSA signatures. A cache
timing attack was fixed in a previous advisory which caused OpenSSL to
do private key calculations with a fixed time window. The DSA fix for
this was not complete and the calculations are not always performed within
a fixed-window. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0109 to this issue.

Testing performed by the OpenSSL group using the Codenomicon TLS Test
Tool uncovered a null-pointer assignment in the do_change_cipher_spec()
function. A remote attacker could perform a carefully crafted SSL/TLS
handshake against a server that uses the OpenSSL library in such a way
as to cause OpenSSL to crash. Depending on the server this could lead to
a denial of service. (CVE-2004-0079)

Users are advised to update to these erratum packages which contain
patches to correct these issues.

Note: After installing this update, users are advised to either
restart all services that use OpenSSL or restart their system.

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 yum and apt.  Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates.  To use yum issue:

yum update

or to use apt:

apt-get update; apt-get upgrade

This will start an interactive process that will result in the
appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system.  This assumes that you
have yum or apt-get configured for obtaining Fedora Legacy content.
Please visit http://www.fedoralegacy.org/docs for directions on how to
configure yum and apt-get.

These packages are GPG signed by Fedora Legacy for security.  Our key is
available from http://www.fedoralegacy.org/about/security.php

You can verify each package with the following command:

    rpm --checksig -v <filename>

If you only wish to verify that each package has not been corrupted or
tampered with, examine only the sha1sum with the following command:

    sha1sum <filename>
