Description

The dsa_sign_setup function in crypto/dsa/dsa_ossl.c in OpenSSL through 1.0.2h does not properly ensure the use of constant-time operations, which makes it easier for local users to discover a DSA private key via a timing side-channel attack.

Solution(s)

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