Summary

OpenSSL is prone to a denial of service (DoS) vulnerability.

Insight

Insight

The SSL/TLS handshaking code in OpenSSL, when using Kerberos ciphersuites, does not properly check the length of Kerberos tickets during a handshake, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted SSL/TLS handshake that causes an out-of-bounds read.

Affected Software

Affected Software

OpenSSL 0.9.7a through 0.9.7c.

Detection Method

Detection Method

Checks if a vulnerable version is present on the target host.

Solution

Solution

Update OpenSSL to version 0.9.7d or later. See the references for more details.
