[SECURITY]: Lücke in TLS Extension von OpenSSL


New Member
OpenSSL Security Advisory [16 November 2010]

TLS extension parsing race condition.

A flaw has been found in the OpenSSL TLS server extension code parsing which
on affected servers can be exploited in a buffer overrun attack.

The OpenSSL security team would like to thank Rob Hulswit for reporting this

The fix was developed by Dr Stephen Henson of the OpenSSL core team.

This vulnerability is tracked as CVE-2010-3864

Who is affected?

All versions of OpenSSL supporting TLS extensions contain this vulnerability
including OpenSSL 0.9.8f through 0.9.8o, 1.0.0, 1.0.0a releases.

Any OpenSSL based TLS server is vulnerable if it is multi-threaded and uses
OpenSSL's internal caching mechanism. Servers that are multi-process and/or
disable internal session caching are NOT affected.

In particular the Apache HTTP server (which never uses OpenSSL internal
caching) and Stunnel (which includes its own workaround) are NOT affected.

Recommendations for users of OpenSSL

Users of all OpenSSL 0.9.8 releases from 0.9.8f through 0.9.8o should update
to the OpenSSL 0.9.8p release which contains a patch to correct this issue.

Users of OpenSSL 1.0.0 and 1.0.0a should update to the OpenSSL 1.0.0b release
which contains a patch to correct this issue.

If upgrading is not immediately possible, the relevant source code patch
provided in this advisory should be applied.
