Description Lukasz Heldt 2006-04-20 10:47:48 EDT
Description of problem:

Redhat uses old version of openssl which has a serious bug.
The bug does not show up in later releases.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

0.9.7a

How reproducible:

Attaching simple program that reveals the problem.
Sha1 generates bad hash when specific pointer is passed.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compile simple program and run it.
  
Actual results:

SHA1 generates bad hash for specified data pointer.

Expected results:

SHA1 should always generate the same hash.

Additional info:

Release 0.9.8 seems to work fine. I have emailed this problem to openssl group.
Nevertheless its probably better to switch to 0.9.8.
