Vulnerability Assessment Details

SSA-2003-273-01 OpenSSL security update

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
SSA-2003-273-01 OpenSSL security update

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Upgraded OpenSSL packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0,
9.1, and -current. These fix problems with ASN.1 parsing which
could lead to a denial of service. It is not known whether the
problems could lead to the running of malicious code on the
server, but it has not been ruled out.

We recommend sites that use OpenSSL upgrade to the fixed packages
right away.
