OpenSSL Security Advisory [27 Mar 2018] ========================================
Constructed ASN.1 types with a recursive definition could exceed the stack (CVE-2018-0739) ==========================================================================================
Constructed ASN.1 types with a recursive definition (such as can be found in PKCS7) could eventually exceed the stack given malicious input with excessive recursion. This could result in a Denial Of Service attack. There are no such structures used within SSL/TLS that come from untrusted sources so this is considered safe.
OpenSSL 1.1.0 users should upgrade to 1.1.0h OpenSSL 1.0.2 users should upgrade to 1.0.2o
This issue was reported to OpenSSL on 4th January 2018 by the OSS-fuzz project. The fix was developed by Matt Caswell of the OpenSSL development team.
rsaz_1024_mul_avx2 overflow bug on x86_64 (CVE-2017-3738) =========================================================
This issue has been reported in a previous OpenSSL security advisory and a fix was provided for OpenSSL 1.0.2. Due to the low severity no fix was released at that time for OpenSSL 1.1.0. The fix is now available in OpenSSL 1.1.0h.
There is an overflow bug in the AVX2 Montgomery multiplication procedure used in exponentiation with 1024-bit moduli. No EC algorithms are affected. Analysis suggests that attacks against RSA and DSA as a result of this defect would be very difficult to perform and are not believed likely. Attacks against DH1024 are considered just feasible, because most of the work necessary to deduce information about a private key may be performed offline. The amount of resources required for such an attack would be significant. However, for an attack on TLS to be meaningful, the server would have to share the DH1024 private key among multiple clients, which is no longer an option since CVE-2016-0701.
This only affects processors that support the AVX2 but not ADX extensions like Intel Haswell (4th generation).
Note: The impact from this issue is similar to CVE-2017-3736, CVE-2017-3732 and CVE-2015-3193.
OpenSSL 1.1.0 users should upgrade to 1.1.0h OpenSSL 1.0.2 users should upgrade to 1.0.2n
This issue was reported to OpenSSL on 22nd November 2017 by David Benjamin (Google). The issue was originally found via the OSS-Fuzz project. The fix was developed by Andy Polyakov of the OpenSSL development team.
(also CVE-2018-0733 which only applies to PA-RISC)
Change "Summary" to satisfy the currency script (hopefully).
Fixed at revision 20023.
