Synopsis

A vulnerability in OpenSSL might allow remote attackers to cause a
Denial of Service condition.

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 1.0.2o-r6

Description

It was discovered that OpenSSL allow malicious servers to send very
large primes to a client during DH(E) based TLS handshakes.

Impact

A remote attacker, by sending large prime to client during DH(E) TLS
handshake, could possibly cause a Denial of Service condition.

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-1.0.2o-r6″
