Description Tomas Hoger 2012-01-18 14:12:10 UTC
Quoting upstream advisory:

  http://www.openssl.org/news/secadv_20120118.txt

  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.

Upstream fix:
http://cvs.openssl.org/chngview?cn=22032 (0.9.8)
http://cvs.openssl.org/chngview?cn=22037 (1.0.0)

Comment 1 Tomas Hoger 2012-01-19 13:00:53 UTC
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.

Statement:

Not vulnerable. This issue did not affect the versions of openssl as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4, 5, and 6.
