CVE-2012-0050 openssl: remote DTLS server DoS introduced in the CVE-2011-4108 fix
Last modified: 2012-02-15 11:24:43 EST
Quoting upstream advisory:
A flaw in the fix to CVE-2011-4108 can be exploited in a denial of
service attack. Only DTLS applications using OpenSSL 1.0.0f and
0.9.8s are affected.
The fix for CVE-2011-4108 (bug #771770) introduced a regression that can allow remote attacker to crash DTLS servers using affected OpenSSL version because of an out-of-bounds read. This issue is corrected in OpenSSL 1.0.0g or 0.9.8t.
As openssl updates for Red Hat Enterprise Linux addressing CVE-2011-4108 have not been released yet, no released openssl version in Red Hat Enterprise Linux is affected by this flaw. Future updates will use corrected CVE-2011-4108 fix that does not introduce this problem.
openssl packages versions in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4 do not have DTLS support and hence can not be affected by this issue or CVE-2011-4108.
Not vulnerable. This issue did not affect the versions of openssl as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4, 5, and 6.
