CentOS Update for openssl CESA-2014:0624 centos5

Published: 2014-06-09 06:57:31
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:

Affected Versions:
openssl on CentOS 5

Technical Details:
OpenSSL is a toolkit that implements the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3) and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) protocols, as well as a full-strength, general purpose cryptography library. It was found that OpenSSL clients and servers could be forced, via a specially crafted handshake packet, to use weak keying material for communication. A man-in-the-middle attacker could use this flaw to decrypt and modify traffic between a client and a server. (CVE-2014-0224) Note: In order to exploit this flaw, both the server and the client must be using a vulnerable version of OpenSSL the server must be using OpenSSL version 1.0.1 and above, and the client must be using any version of OpenSSL. Please see the references for more information about this flaw. Red Hat would like to thank the OpenSSL project for reporting this issue. Upstream acknowledges KIKUCHI Masashi of Lepidum as the original reporter of this issue. All OpenSSL users are advised to upgrade to these updated Linux Distribution Packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. For the update to take effect, all services linked to the OpenSSL library (such as httpd and other SSL-enabled services) must be restarted or the system rebooted. 4. Solution: Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant to your system have been applied. This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at the linked references. 5. Bugs fixed: 1103586 - CVE-2014-0224 openssl: SSL/TLS MITM vulnerability 6.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
