Just checking in on the status of this patch?

Comment 3 David A. Cafaro 2015-04-29 13:19:15 UTC
Looking upstream it appears a patch for this was added in Release 17.5 and later.


"OTP-12420    Application(s): ssl

               *** POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY ***

               Add padding check for TLS-1.0 to remove Poodle
               vulnerability from TLS 1.0, also add the option
               padding_check. This option only affects TLS-1.0
               connections and if set to false it disables the block
               cipher padding check to be able to interoperate with
               legacy software.

  OTP-12458    Application(s): ssl

               Add support for TLS_FALLBACK_SCSV used to prevent
               undesired TLS version downgrades. If used by a client
               that is vulnerable to the POODLE attack, and the server
               also supports TLS_FALLBACK_SCSV, the attack can be

This would need to be an update from the current erlang-R16B-03.10.fc20 and 17.4-1.fc21 packages.

Do we have any status on a fix for this?

Comment 4 David A. Cafaro 2015-05-06 17:05:07 UTC

Comment 6 Peter Lemenkov 2015-05-28 19:00:09 UTC
I'll fix it soon (before or during this weekend).

How goes the patching work?

Comment 8 David A. Cafaro 2015-06-11 01:43:55 UTC
Been another week, are you working on it?

Comment 9 David A. Cafaro 2015-08-05 13:57:15 UTC
Any word on an update for this?

Comment 10 John Eckersberg 2015-08-06 14:27:09 UTC
I've got the patch done but it's failing to build on f23 and rawhide due to a bug in fop which causes the doc generation to fail.

Currently working on fixing fop, and then I'll finish this up...
