  EnGarde Secure Linux is a secure distribution of Linux that features
  improved access control, host and network intrusion detection, Web
  based secure remote management, complete e-commerce using AllCommerce,
  and integrated open source security tools.

- --------
  There are several potentially exploitable vulnerabilities in the OpenSSL
  toolkit.  A security review of OpenSSL is being done by A.L. Digital Ltd
  and The Bunker (http://www.thebunker.net/) under the DARPA program
  CHATS.  Through this review, the following vulnerabilities were

    1. The client master key in SSL2 could be oversized and overrun a
       buffer. This vulnerability was also independently discovered by
       consultants at Neohapsis (http://www.neohapsis.com/) who have
       also demonstrated that the vulnerability is exploitable.

    2. The session ID supplied to a client in SSL3 could be oversized and
       overrun a buffer.

    3. Various buffers for ASCII representations of integers were too
       small on 64 bit platforms.

    4. The ASN1 parser can be confused by supplying it with certain
       invalid encodings.

  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org/) has
  assigned the name CAN-2002-0656 to issues 1-2, CAN-2002-0655 to issue 3,
  and CAN-2002-0659 to issue 4.

  Users of the EnGarde Professional edition can use the Guardian Digital
  Secure Network to update their systems automatically.

  EnGarde Community users should upgrade to the most recent version
  as outlined in this advisory.  Updates may be obtained from:


  Before upgrading the package, the machine must either:

    a) be booted into a "standard" kernel; or
    b) have LIDS disabled.

  To disable LIDS, execute the command:

    # /sbin/lidsadm -S -- -LIDS_GLOBAL

  To install the updated package, execute the command:

    # rpm -Uvh files

  You must now update the LIDS configuration by executing the command:

    # /usr/sbin/config_lids.pl

  To re-enable LIDS (if it was disabled), execute the command:

    # /sbin/lidsadm -S -- +LIDS_GLOBAL

  To verify the signatures of the updated packages, execute the command:

    # rpm -Kv files
