                       VULNERABILITY SUMMARY

VULNERABILITY: Multiple OpenSSL vulnerabilities

PLATFORMS: AIX 5.3, 6.1, 7.1, and earlier releases
| VIOS 2.X and 1.5.2

SOLUTION: Apply the fix as described below.

THREAT: See below

CVE Numbers: CVE-2011-4108
CVE-2011-4109
CVE-2011-4576
CVE-2011-4619
CVE-2012-0050

                       DETAILED INFORMATION

I. DESCRIPTION (from cve.mitre.org)

The DTLS implementation in OpenSSL before 0.9.8s and 1.x before 
1.0.0f performs a MAC check only if certain padding is valid, which 
makes it easier for remote attackers to recover plaintext via a 
padding oracle attack. 

Double free vulnerability in OpenSSL 0.9.8 before 0.9.8s, when 
X509_V_FLAG_POLICY_CHECK is enabled, allows remote attackers to have 
an unspecified impact by triggering failure of a policy check. 

The SSL 3.0 implementation in OpenSSL before 0.9.8s and 1.x before 
1.0.0f does not properly initialize data structures for block cipher 
padding, which might allow remote attackers to obtain sensitive 
information by decrypting the padding data sent by an SSL peer. 

The Server Gated Cryptography (SGC) implementation in OpenSSL before 
0.9.8s and 1.x before 1.0.0f does not properly handle handshake 
restarts, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service 
via unspecified vectors. 

OpenSSL 0.9.8s and 1.0.0f does not properly support DTLS applications, 
which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via 
unspecified vectors. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an 
incorrect fix for CVE-2011-4108.

https://vulners.com/cve/CVE-2011-4109

https://vulners.com/cve/CVE-2011-4619
https://vulners.com/cve/CVE-2012-0050

II. PLATFORM VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT

To determine if your system is vulnerable, execute the following
command:

lslpp -L openssl.base

On VIO Server:

oem_setup_env
lslpp -L openssl.base

The following fileset levels are vulnerable:

AIX 7.1, 6.1, 5.3: all versions less than or equal 0.9.8.1800

| AIX 7.1, 6.1, 5.3: FIPS capable versions less than or equal 12.9.8.1800
AIX 5.2: all versions less than or equal 0.9.8.808
| VIOS 2.X, 1.5.2: all versions less than or equal 0.9.8.1800

IMPORTANT: If AIX OpenSSH is in use, it must be updated to version
OpenSSH 5.0 or later, depending on the OpenSSL version according to
following compatibility matrix:

AIX              OpenSSL                    OpenSSH
------------------------------------------------------------------
5.2              OpenSSL 0.9.8.80x          OpenSSH 5.0
5.3,6.1,7.1      OpenSSL 0.9.8.18xx         OpenSSH 5.8.0.61xx
5.3,6.1,7.1      OpenSSL-fips 12.9.8.18xx   OpenSSH 5.8.0.61xx
VIOS OpenSSL OpenSSH
2.X,1.5.2 OpenSSL 0.9.8.18x OpenSSH 5.8.0.61xx
AIX OpenSSH can be downloaded from:

OpenSSH 5.0:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/openssh-aix
OpenSSH 5.8.0.61xx
https://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/iwm/web/preLogin.do?source=aixbp

III. FIXES

A fix is available, and it can be downloaded from:

https://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/iwm/web/preLogin.do?source=aixbp

To extract the fixes from the tar file:

zcat openssl.0.9.8.1801.tar.Z | tar xvf -
or
zcat openssl-fips.12.9.8.1801.tar.Z | tar xvf -
or
zcat openssl.0.9.8.809.tar.Z | tar xvf -

IMPORTANT: If possible, it is recommended that a mksysb backup
of the system be created.  Verify it is both bootable and
readable before proceeding.

To preview the fix installation:

installp -apYd . openssl

To install the fix package:

installp -aXYd . openssl

IV. WORKAROUNDS

There are no workarounds.
