Red Hat Linux Advisories: OpenSSL

Sep 30, 2003, 14:56 (0 Talkback[s])

Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Updated OpenSSL packages fix vulnerabilities
Advisory ID: RHSA-2003:292-01
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 CAN-2003-0545

1. Topic:

Updated OpenSSL packages that fix ASN.1 parsing vulnerabilities are now available for Red Hat Linux 9.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 9 - 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.

NISCC testing of implementations of the SSL protocol uncovered an additional bug in OpenSSL 0.9.7. Certain ASN.1 encodings that are rejected as invalid by the parser can trigger a bug in deallocation of a structure, leading to a double free. A remote attacker could trigger this bug by sending a carefully-crafted SSL client certificate to an application. It may be possible for an attacker to exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org/) has assigned the name CAN-2003-0545 to this issue.

These erratum packages contain patches provided by the OpenSSL group that protects against these issues.

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 these vulnerabilities.

These packages also include a patch from OpenSSL 0.9.6f which removes the calls to abo

rt 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

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla for more info):

99066 - memory leak in SSL_new()

These packages are GPG signed by Red Hat for security. Our key is available from https://www.redhat.com/security/keys.html

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 md5sum with the following command:

md5sum <filename>
