Description Vincent Danen 2012-01-04 22:38:53 UTC
Uninitialized SSL 3.0 Padding (CVE-2011-4576)
=============================================

OpenSSL prior to 1.0.0f and 0.9.8s failed to clear the bytes used as
block cipher padding in SSL 3.0 records. This affects both clients and
servers that accept SSL 3.0 handshakes: those that call SSL_CTX_new with
SSLv3_{server|client}_method or SSLv23_{server|client}_method. It does
not affect TLS.

As a result, in each record, up to 15 bytes of uninitialized memory
may be sent, encrypted, to the SSL peer. This could include sensitive
contents of previously freed memory.

However, in practice, most deployments do not use
SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS and therefore have a single write buffer per
connection. That write buffer is partially filled with non-sensitive,
handshake data at the beginning of the connection and, thereafter,
only records which are longer any any previously sent record leak any
non-encrypted data. This, combined with the small number of bytes
leaked per record, serves to limit to severity of this issue.

Thanks to Adam Langley <agl@chromium.org> for identifying and fixing
this issue.

Affected users should upgrade to OpenSSL 1.0.0f or 0.9.8s.
