Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in OpenSSL. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following issues:

  • CVE-2012-0884
    Ivan Nestlerode discovered a weakness in the CMS and PKCS #7
    implementations that could allow an attacker to decrypt data
    via a Million Message Attack (MMA).
  • CVE-2012-1165
    It was discovered that a NULL pointer could be dereferenced
    when parsing certain S/MIME messages, leading to denial of
    service.
  • CVE-2012-2110
    Tavis Ormandy, Google Security Team, discovered a vulnerability
    in the way DER-encoded ASN.1 data is parsed that can result in
    a heap overflow.

Additionally, the fix for CVE-2011-4619 has been updated to address an
issue with SGC handshakes.

Tomas Hoger, Red Hat, discovered that the fix for
CVE-2012-2110
for the 0.9.8 series of OpenSSL was incomplete. It has been assigned the
CVE-2012-2131
identifier.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
version 0.9.8o-4squeeze12.

For the testing distribution (wheezy), these problems will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0.1a-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your openssl packages.
