Security Bulletin: Vulnerabilities in OpenSSL affect AIX (CVE-2018-0734,
CVE-2018-5407)

===============================================================================

SUMMARY:

There are vulnerabilities in OpenSSL used by AIX.

===============================================================================

VULNERABILITY DETAILS:

CVEID: CVE-2018-0734
    https://vulners.com/cve/CVE-2018-0734
    https://vulners.com/cve/CVE-2018-0734
DESCRIPTION: OpenSSL could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive 
    information, caused by a timing side channel attack in the DSA 
    signature algorithm. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability 
    using variations in the signing algorithm to recover the private key.
CVSS Base Score: 3.7
CVSS Temporal Score: See
    https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/152085 
    for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector:(CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2018-5407
    https://vulners.com/cve/CVE-2018-5407
    https://vulners.com/cve/CVE-2018-5407
DESCRIPTION: Multiple SMT/Hyper-Threading architectures and 
    processors could allow a local attacker to obtain sensitive 
    information, caused by execution engine sharing on Simultaneous 
    Multithreading (SMT) architecture. By using the PortSmash new 
    side-channel attack, an attacker could run a malicious process next 
    to legitimate processes using the architectures parallel thread 
    running capabilities to leak encrypted data from the CPU's internal 
    processes. Note: This vulnerability is known as PortSmash.
CVSS Base Score: 5.1
CVSS Temporal Score: See
    https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/152484
    for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector:(CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N)


AFFECTED PRODUCTS AND VERSIONS:

    AIX 5.3, 6.1, 7.1, 7.2
    VIOS 2.2.x

    The following fileset levels are vulnerable:
    
    key_fileset = osrcaix

    Fileset          Lower Level   Upper Level    KEY
    ------------------------------------------------------
    openssl.base    1.0.2.500      1.0.2.1600     key_w_fs
    openssl.base    20.13.102.1000 20.16.102.1600 key_w_fs

    Note:
    A. 0.9.8, 1.0.1 OpenSSL versions are out-of-support. Customers are
        advised to upgrade to currently supported OpenSSL 1.0.2 version.

    B. Latest level of OpenSSL fileset is available from the web download site:
https://www-01.ibm.com/marketing/iwm/iwm/web/pickUrxNew.do?source=aixbp&S_PKG=openssl

    To find out whether the affected filesets are installed on your systems,
    refer to the lslpp command found in the AIX user's guide.

    Example:  lslpp -L | grep -i openssl.base

REMEDIATION:

    A. FIXES

        The fixes can be downloaded via ftp or http from:

        ftp://aix.software.ibm.com/aix/efixes/security/openssl_fix29.tar
        http://aix.software.ibm.com/aix/efixes/security/openssl_fix29.tar
        https://aix.software.ibm.com/aix/efixes/security/openssl_fix29.tar

        The links above are to a tar file containing this signed
        advisory, fix packages, and OpenSSL signatures for each package.
        The fixes below include prerequisite checking. This will
        enforce the correct mapping between the fixes and AIX
        Technology Levels.
        
        Note that the tar file contains Interim fixes that are based on
        OpenSSL version, and AIX OpenSSL fixes are cumulative.

        You must be on the 'prereq for installation' level before
        applying the interim fix. This may require installing a new
        level(prereq version) first.


        AIX Level           Interim Fix (*.Z)        Fileset Name(prereq for installation) KEY
        --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
        5.3, 6.1, 7.1, 7.2  102p_fix.181127.epkg.Z   openssl.base(1.0.2.1600)            key_w_fix
        5.3, 6.1, 7.1, 7.2  fips_102p.181127.epkg.Z  openssl.base(20.16.102.1600)        key_w_fix

        VIOS Level     Interim Fix (*.Z)             Fileset Name(prereq for installation) KEY
        --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
        2.2.x         102p_fix.181127.epkg.Z        openssl.base(1.0.2.1600)             key_w_fix 
        2.2.x         fips_102p.181127.epkg.Z       openssl.base(20.16.102.1600)         key_w_fix


        To extract the fixes from the tar file:

        tar xvf openssl_fix29.tar
        cd openssl_fix29

        Verify you have retrieved the fixes intact:

        The checksums below were generated using the
        "openssl dgst -sha256 file" command as the followng:

        openssl dgst -sha256                                              filename                 KEY
        -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
        4f68017e5ff53cb74e0f6e30fc0410193dd1641e7997a5a9e4bc630d47666eaf  102p_fix.181127.epkg.Z key_w_csum
        42714d3f644d4b3250314721ae2e32f0680fea264f9b358a50f7fe9c07713b38  fips_102p.181127.epkg.Z key_w_csum

        These sums should match exactly. The OpenSSL signatures in the tar
        file and on this advisory can also be used to verify the
        integrity of the fixes.  If the sums or signatures cannot be
        confirmed, contact IBM AIX Support at
        https://ibm.com/support/ and describe the discrepancy.
        
        openssl dgst -sha1 -verify <pubkey_file> -signature <advisory_file>.sig <advisory_file>

        openssl dgst -sha1 -verify <pubkey_file> -signature <ifix_file>.sig <ifix_file>

        Published advisory OpenSSL signature file location:

        http://aix.software.ibm.com/aix/efixes/security/openssl_advisory29.asc.sig
        https://aix.software.ibm.com/aix/efixes/security/openssl_advisory29.asc.sig
        ftp://aix.software.ibm.com/aix/efixes/security/openssl_advisory29.asc.sig

    B. FIX AND INTERIM FIX INSTALLATION

        Interim fixes have had limited functional and regression
        testing but not the full regression testing that takes place
        for Service Packs; however, IBM does fully support them.

        Interim fix management documentation can be found at:

        http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/sas/f/aix.efixmgmt/home.html

        To preview an interim fix installation:

        emgr -e ipkg_name -p         # where ipkg_name is the name of the
                                     # interim fix package being previewed.

        To install an interim fix package:

        emgr -e ipkg_name -X         # where ipkg_name is the name of the
                                     # interim fix package being installed.
