Description Mark J. Cox 2009-05-18 08:54:04 UTC
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2009-1378 to the following vulnerability:

In dtls1_process_out_of_seq_message() the check if the current message
is already buffered was missing. For every new message was memory
allocated, allowing an attacker to perform an denial of service attack
with sending out of seq handshake messages until there is no memory
left. Additionally every future messege was buffered, even if the
sequence number made no sense and would be part of another handshake.
So only messages with sequence numbers less than 10 in advance will be
buffered.

Comment 1 Jan Lieskovsky 2009-05-19 19:43:36 UTC
CVE-2009-1378:

Multiple memory leaks in the dtls1_process_out_of_seq_message function
in ssl/d1_both.c in OpenSSL 0.9.8k and earlier 0.9.8 versions allow
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via
DTLS records that (1) are duplicates or (2) have sequence numbers much
greater than current sequence numbers, aka "DTLS fragment handling
memory leak."

Comment 6 Tomas Hoger 2009-06-02 09:25:17 UTC
This issue did not affect versions of openssl as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4.

This issue affects openssl version as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and it will be addressed in the openssl packages update in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4.  There is no update planned before than, as both DTLS specification and OpenSSL's implementation is still in development and unlikely to be used in production environments.  There is no component shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 using OpenSSL's DTLS implementation, except for OpenSSL's testing command line client - openssl.
