Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA1174] DSA-1174-1 openssl096

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-1174-1 openssl096

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Daniel Bleichenbacher discovered a flaw in the OpenSSL cryptographic package
that could permit a possible hacker to generate a forged signature that OpenSSL
will accept as valid.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.6m-1sarge2.
This package exists only for compatibility with older software, and is
not present in the unstable or testing branches of Debian.
We recommend that you upgrade your openssl packages. Note that services
linking against the openssl shared libraries will need to be restarted.
Common examples of such services include most Mail Transport Agents, SSH
servers, and web servers.
