USN-830-1: OpenSSL vulnerability

Severity CVSS Published Added Modified
5 (AV:N/AC:H/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P) July 30, 2009 May 06, 2013 July 04, 2017


The Network Security Services (NSS) library before 3.12.3, as used in Firefox; GnuTLS before 2.6.4 and 2.7.4; OpenSSL 0.9.8 through 0.9.8k; and other products support MD2 with X.509 certificates, which might allow remote attackers to spoof certificates by using MD2 design flaws to generate a hash collision in less than brute-force time. NOTE: the scope of this issue is currently limited because the amount of computation required is still large.
