Description

stunnel before 5.00, when using fork threading, does not properly update the state of the OpenSSL pseudo-random number generator (PRNG), which causes subsequent children with the same process ID to use the same entropy pool and allows remote attackers to obtain private keys for EC (ECDSA) or DSA certificates.

Solution(s)

  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-net-misc-stunnel

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
