Description

Package : erlang Version : 15.b.1-dfsg-4+deb7u2 CVE ID : CVE-2017-1000385

An erlang TLS server configured with cipher suites using RSA key exchange, may be vulnerable to an Adaptive Chosen Ciphertext attack (AKA Bleichenbacher attack) against RSA, which when exploited, may result in plaintext recovery of encrypted messages and/or a Man-in-the-middle (MiTM) attack, despite the attacker not having gained access to the server’s private key itself.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version 15.b.1-dfsg-4+deb7u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your erlang packages.
