OpenSSL: Denial of service

Description

### Background OpenSSL is an Open Source toolkit implementing the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3) and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1/v1.1/v1.2/v1.3) as well as a general purpose cryptography library. ### Description A null pointer dereference flaw was found in OpenSSL. ### Impact A remote attacker, able to control the arguments of the GENERAL_NAME_cmp function in an application linked against OpenSSL, could possibly cause a Denial of Service condition. ### Workaround There is no known workaround at this time. ### Resolution All OpenSSL users should upgrade to the latest version: # emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/openssl-1.1.1i"
