Debian Security Advisory DSA-2833-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Moritz Muehlenhoff January 01, 2014 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : openssl Vulnerability : several Problem type : local Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CVE-2013-6449 CVE-2013-6450 Debian Bug : 732754 732710

Multiple security issues have been fixed in OpenSSL: The TLS 1.2 support was susceptible to denial of service and retransmission of DTLS messages was fixed. In addition this updates disables the insecure Dual_EC_DRBG algorithm (which was unused anyway, see http://marc.info/?l=openssl-announce&m=138747119822324&w=2 for further information) and no longer uses the RdRand feature available on some Intel CPUs as a sole source of entropy unless explicitly requested.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.1e-2+deb7u1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.1e-5.

We recommend that you upgrade your openssl packages.
