ELSA-2014-0015 Important: Oracle Linux openssl security update

Severity CVSS Published Added Modified
6 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:P) December 31, 2013 January 08, 2014 July 03, 2017

Description

The DTLS retransmission implementation in OpenSSL 1.0.0 before 1.0.0l and 1.0.1 before 1.0.1f does not properly maintain data structures for digest and encryption contexts, which might allow man-in-the-middle attackers to trigger the use of a different context and cause a denial of service (application crash) by interfering with packet delivery, related to ssl/d1_both.c and ssl/t1_enc.c.
