Description

It was discovered that the elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) subsystem in OpenSSL, when using the Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) for the ECDHE_ECDSA cipher suite, did not properly implement curves over binary fields. This could allow an attacker to determine private keys via a timing attack. This issue only affected Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, Ubuntu 10.10 and Ubuntu 11.04. (CVE-2011-1945)

Adam Langley discovered that the ephemeral Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman (ECDH) functionality in OpenSSL did not ensure thread safety while processing handshake messages from clients. This could allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service via out-of-order messages that violate the TLS protocol. This issue only affected Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, Ubuntu 10.10 and Ubuntu 11.04. (CVE-2011-3210)

Nadhem Alfardan and Kenny Paterson discovered that the Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) implementation in OpenSSL performed a MAC check only if certain padding is valid. This could allow a remote attacker to recover plaintext. (CVE-2011-4108)

Antonio Martin discovered that a flaw existed in the fix to address CVE-2011-4108, the DTLS MAC check failure. This could allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2012-0050)

Ben Laurie discovered a double free vulnerability in OpenSSL that could be triggered when the X509_V_FLAG_POLICY_CHECK flag is enabled. This could allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, Ubuntu 10.10 and Ubuntu 11.04. (CVE-2011-4109)

It was discovered that OpenSSL, in certain circumstances involving ECDH or ECDHE cipher suites, used an incorrect modular reduction algorithm in its implementation of the P-256 and P-384 NIST elliptic curves. This could allow a remote attacker to obtain the private key of a TLS server via multiple handshake attempts. This issue only affected Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. (CVE-2011-4354)

Adam Langley discovered that the SSL 3.0 implementation in OpenSSL did not properly initialize data structures for block cipher padding. This could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2011-4576)

Andrew Chi discovered that OpenSSL, when RFC 3779 support is enabled, could trigger an assert when handling an X.509 certificate containing certificate-extension data associated with IP address blocks or Autonomous System (AS) identifiers. This could allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2011-4577)

Adam Langley discovered that the Server Gated Cryptography (SGC) implementation in OpenSSL did not properly handle handshake restarts. This could allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2011-4619)

Andrey Kulikov discovered that the GOST block cipher engine in OpenSSL did not properly handle invalid parameters. This could allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service via crafted data from a TLS client. This issue only affected Ubuntu 11.10. (CVE-2012-0027)
