rPath Security Advisory: 2008-0241-1
rPath Linux 1
Exposure Level Classification:
Remote Deterministic Unauthorized Access
openssl=conary.rpath.com () rpl:1-compat/0.9.7a-0.5-2
openssl-scripts=conary.rpath.com () rpl:1-compat/0.9.7a-0.5-2
rPath Issue Tracking System:
Previous versions of the legacy openssl compatibility package are
vulnerable to a buffer overflow, possibly enabling remote attackers
to execute arbitrary code through applications that use the openssl
This compatibility library was provided solely for transient
compatibility with applications built for alpha releases of rPath
Linux, to make it easier for alpha testers to upgrade their systems
to rPath Linux 1. rPath is not aware of any applications that
currently use these libraries, and so it is unlikely that any
systems will actually be vulnerable to these attacks.
