Synopsis

Multiple Information Disclosure vulnerabilities in OpenSSL allow
attackers to obtain sensitive information.

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 1.0.2r=20

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in OpenSSL. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact

A remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by the
failure to immediately close the TCP connection after the hosts
encounter a zero-length record with valid padding.

A local attacker could run a malicious process next to legitimate
processes using the architecture=E2=80=99s parallel thread running capabili=
ties
to leak encrypted data from the CPU’s internal processes.

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-1.0.2r”
