VULNERABILITY: Multiple OpenSSL vulnerabilities

PLATFORMS: AIX 5.3, 6.1 and 7.1 VIOS 2.X

SOLUTION: Apply the fix as described below.

THREAT: See below

CVE Numbers: CVE-2013-4353 CVE-2013-6450 CVE-2013-6449

Reboot required? NO Workarounds? NO Protected by FPM? NO Protected by SED? NO =============================================================================== DETAILED INFORMATION

I. DESCRIPTION (From cve.mitre.org)

CVE-2013-4353
A carefully crafted invalid TLS handshake could crash OpenSSL with a NULL 
pointer exception. A malicious server could use this flaw to crash a
connecting client. This issue only affected OpenSSL 1.0.1 versions.

CVE-2013-6450
A flaw in DTLS handling can cause an application using OpenSSL and DTLS to
crash. This is not a vulnerability for OpenSSL prior to 1.0.0. OpenSSL is 
vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by the failure to properly 
maintain data structures for digest and encryption contexts by the DTLS    
retransmission implementation. A remote attacker could exploit this i
vulnerability to cause the daemon to crash.

CVE-2013-6449
A flaw in OpenSSL can cause an application using OpenSSL to crash when 
using TLS version 1.2. This issue only affected OpenSSL 1.0.1 versions. 
OpenSSL is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by an error in the 
ssl_get_algorithm2 function. A remote attacker could exploit this 
vulnerability using specially-crafted traffic from a TLS 1.2 client to 
cause the daemon to crash.

III. PLATFORM VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT

The following fileset levels are vulnerable:

| AIX 7.1, 6.1, 5.3: all versions equal to 1.0.1.500 | VIOS 2.X: all versions equal to 1.0.1.500

IMPORTANT: If AIX OpenSSH is in use, it must be updated to version
OpenSSH 6.0 or later, depending on the OpenSSL version according to
following compatibility matrix:

AIX              OpenSSL                    OpenSSH
------------------------------------------------------------------
5.3,6.1,7.1      OpenSSL 1.0.1.501          OpenSSH 6.0.0.6103
                 (Available)

VIOS             OpenSSL                    OpenSSH
------------------------------------------------------------------
2.X              OpenSSL 1.0.1.501          OpenSSH 6.0.0.6103
                 (Available)

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

AIX OpenSSH can be downloaded from:

OpenSSH 6.0:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/openssh-aix
OpenSSH 6.0.0.6103
https://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/iwm/web/preLogin.do?source=aixbp

IV. 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-1.0.1.501.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

V. WORKAROUNDS

There are no workarounds.
