Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 3 2005-1042: openssl096b

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the openssl096b package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-1042 (openssl096b).

The OpenSSL toolkit provides support for secure communications between
machines. OpenSSL includes a certificate management tool and shared
libraries which provide various cryptographic algorithms and
protocols.

Update Information:

CAN-2004-0079, a remote crasher, was originally believed to
only affect versions of OpenSSL after 0.9.6b verified with
Codenomicon test suite (see pkt539.c). However we've had a
customer report that this affects 0.9.6b via a different
reproducer. This therefore affects the openssl096b
compat packages as shipped with FC-3.
