Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in OpenSSL, allowing remote
attackers to cause a Denial of Service or obtain sensitive information.

Background
==========

OpenSSL is an Open Source toolkit implementing the Secure Sockets Layer
(SSL v2/v3) and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) as well as a general
purpose cryptography library.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 dev-libs/openssl < 1.0.0g *>= 0.9.8t
>= 1.0.0g

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in OpenSSL:

* Timing differences for decryption are exposed by CBC mode encryption
in OpenSSL's implementation of DTLS (CVE-2011-4108).
* A policy check failure can result in a double-free error when
X509_V_FLAG_POLICY_CHECK is set (CVE-2011-4109).
* Clients and servers using SSL 3.0 handshakes do not clear the block
cipher padding, allowing a record to contain up to 15 bytes of
uninitialized memory, which could include sensitive information
(CVE-2011-4576).
* Assertion errors can occur during the handling of malformed X.509
certificates when OpenSSL is built with RFC 3779 support
(CVE-2011-4577).
* A resource management error can occur when OpenSSL's server gated
cryptography (SGC) does not properly handle handshake restarts
(CVE-2011-4619).
* Invalid parameters in the GOST block cipher are not properly handled
by the GOST ENGINE(CVE-2012-0027).
* An incorrect fix for CVE-2011-4108 creates an unspecified
vulnerability for DTLS applications using OpenSSL (CVE-2012-0050).

Impact
======

A remote attacker may be able to cause a Denial of Service or obtain
sensitive information, including plaintext passwords.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All OpenSSL users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/openssl-1.0.0g"
