Description

The implementation of Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) and PKCS #7 in OpenSSL before 0.9.8u and 1.x before 1.0.0h does not properly restrict certain oracle behavior, which makes it easier for context-dependent attackers to decrypt data via a Million Message Attack (MMA) adaptive chosen ciphertext attack.

Solution(s)

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-openssl
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-openssl-devel
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-openssl-perl
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-openssl-static

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.
