Description Laura Pardo 2018-10-30 15:46:18 UTC
A flaw was found in OpenSSL versions from 1.1.0 through 1.1.0i inclusive and version 1.1.1. The OpenSSL ECDSA signature algorithm has been shown to be vulnerable to a timing side channel attack. An attacker could use variations in the signing algorithm to recover the private key.
