Description

The AES-NI implementation in OpenSSL before 1.0.1t and 1.0.2 before 1.0.2h does not consider memory allocation during a certain padding check, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive cleartext information via a padding-oracle attack against an AES CBC session. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2013-0169.

Solution(s)

  • http-openssl-1_0_1-upgrade-1_0_1_t
  • http-openssl-1_0_2-upgrade-1_0_2_h
