Debian Security Advisory DSA-2981-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Salvatore Bonaccorso July 18, 2014 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : polarssl CVE ID : CVE-2014-4911 Debian Bug : 754655

A flaw was discovered in PolarSSL, a lightweight crypto and SSL/TLS library, which can be exploited by a remote unauthenticated attacker to mount a denial of service against PolarSSL servers that offer GCM ciphersuites. Potentially clients are affected too if a malicious server decides to execute the denial of service attack against its clients.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 1.2.9-1~deb7u3.

For the testing distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 1.3.7-2.1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1.3.7-2.1.

We recommend that you upgrade your polarssl packages.
