Description

Libgcrypt before 1.6.5 does not properly perform elliptic-point curve multiplication during decryption, which makes it easier for physically proximate attackers to extract ECDH keys by measuring electromagnetic emanations.

Solution(s)

  • ubuntu-upgrade-libgcrypt11
  • ubuntu-upgrade-libgcrypt20

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.
