Description:
This update fixes two problems with openssl packages and recompiles
openssh and mod_ssl against the new version of openssl. Quoting from
the OpenSSL advisory:
Vlastimil Klima, Ondrej Pokorny, and Tomas Rosa have come up with an
extension of the "Bleichenbacher attack" on RSA with PKCS #1 v1.5
padding as used in SSL 3.0 and TLS 1.0. Their attack requires the
attacker to open millions of SSL/TLS connections to the server under
attack; the server's behaviour when faced with specially made-up RSA
ciphertexts can reveal information that in effect allows the attacker
to perform a single RSA private key operation on a ciphertext of
its choice using the server's RSA key. Note that the server's RSA
key is not compromised in this attack.
The other problem, quoting from the CERT advisory: David Brumley and Dan
Boneh, researchers at Stanford University, have written a paper that
demonstrates a practical attack that can be used to extract private
keys from vulnerable RSA applications. Using statistical techniques
and carefully measuring the amount of time required to complete an
RSA operation, an attacker can recover one of the factors (q) of the
RSA key. [...] Under optimal conditions, a 1024-bit RSA private key
was extracted in approximately two hours using ~350,000 guesses.
