OS X update for OpenSSL (CVE-2012-4929)

Severity CVSS Published Added Modified
3 (AV:N/AC:H/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N) September 14, 2012 June 19, 2013 April 04, 2017

Description

The TLS protocol 1.2 and earlier, as used in Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Qt, and other products, can encrypt compressed data without properly obfuscating the length of the unencrypted data, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to obtain plaintext HTTP headers by observing length differences during a series of guesses in which a string in an HTTP request potentially matches an unknown string in an HTTP header, aka a "CRIME" attack.
