|Fixed In Version:||bouncycastle 1.48||Doc Type:||Bug Fix|
It was discovered that bouncycastle leaked timing information when decrypting TLS/SSL protocol encrypted records when CBC-mode cipher suites were used. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to retrieve plain text from the encrypted packets by using a TLS/SSL server as a padding oracle.

Comment 1 Vincent Danen 2013-02-06 17:04:06 UTC
So it's not lost, quoting Orcan's comment from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=907589#c7 here: Orcan Ogetbil 2013-02-05 20:34:45 EST Hi, the bouncycastle update is problematic. Namely, we are stuck with version 1.46 because the later version (1.47) comes with backward incompatible API changes. This affects the dependent libraries, in particular itext. Unfortunately we are also stuck with itext-2.1.7 because the next version series (itext-5.*) was vetoed by FE-Legal. Note that I do not maintain bouncycastle any more. I dropped my maintainership last August after an announcement in the Fedora-devel mailing list. To my knowledge no one picked it up yet, which makes me wonder why this bug CCd me. I can still provide some help though if you can supply a patch. If you provide a patch for bouncycastle-1.46 we can get around this problem. Also, according to: http://www.bouncycastle.org/viewcvs/viewcvs.cgi/java/crypto/releasenotes.html?r1=1.181&r2=1.182 This has been fixed in CVS already (although finding the patches that were used might be fun).
