Debian Security Advisory DSA-3566-1 security@debian.org https://www.debian.org/security/ Alessandro Ghedini May 03, 2016 https://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : openssl CVE ID : CVE-2016-2105 CVE-2016-2106 CVE-2016-2107 CVE-2016-2108 CVE-2016-2109 CVE-2016-2176

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in OpenSSL, a Secure Socket Layer toolkit.

CVE-2016-2105

Guido Vranken discovered that an overflow can occur in the function
EVP_EncodeUpdate(), used for Base64 encoding, if an attacker can
supply a large amount of data. This could lead to a heap corruption.

CVE-2016-2106

Guido Vranken discovered that an overflow can occur in the function
EVP_EncryptUpdate() if an attacker can supply a large amount of data.
This could lead to a heap corruption.

CVE-2016-2107

Juraj Somorovsky discovered a padding oracle in the AES CBC cipher
implementation based on the AES-NI instruction set. This could allow
an attacker to decrypt TLS traffic encrypted with one of the cipher
suites based on AES CBC.

CVE-2016-2108

David Benjamin from Google discovered that two separate bugs in the
ASN.1 encoder, related to handling of negative zero integer values
and large universal tags, could lead to an out-of-bounds write.

CVE-2016-2109

Brian Carpenter discovered that when ASN.1 data is read from a BIO
using functions such as d2i_CMS_bio(), a short invalid encoding can
casuse allocation of large amounts of memory potentially consuming
excessive resources or exhausting memory.

CVE-2016-2176

Guido Vranken discovered that ASN.1 Strings that are over 1024 bytes
can cause an overread in applications using the X509_NAME_oneline()
function on EBCDIC systems. This could result in arbitrary stack data
being returned in the buffer.

Additional information about these issues can be found in the OpenSSL security advisory at https://www.openssl.org/news/secadv/20160503.txt

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.1k-3+deb8u5.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.2h-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your openssl packages.
