Exploitability:
CWE CWE-119
CAPEC
  • Buffer Overflow via Environment Variables
    This attack pattern involves causing a buffer overflow through manipulation of environment variables. Once the attacker finds that they can modify an environment variable, they may try to overflow associated buffers. This attack leverages implicit trust often placed in environment variables.
  • Overflow Buffers
    Buffer Overflow attacks target improper or missing bounds checking on buffer operations, typically triggered by input injected by an attacker. As a consequence, an attacker is able to write past the boundaries of allocated buffer regions in memory, causing a program crash or potentially redirection of execution as per the attackers' choice.
  • Client-side Injection-induced Buffer Overflow
    This type of attack exploits a buffer overflow vulnerability in targeted client software through injection of malicious content from a custom-built hostile service.
  • Filter Failure through Buffer Overflow
    In this attack, the idea is to cause an active filter to fail by causing an oversized transaction. An attacker may try to feed overly long input strings to the program in an attempt to overwhelm the filter (by causing a buffer overflow) and hoping that the filter does not fail securely (i.e. the user input is let into the system unfiltered).
  • MIME Conversion
    An attacker exploits a weakness in the MIME conversion routine to cause a buffer overflow and gain control over the mail server machine. The MIME system is designed to allow various different information formats to be interpreted and sent via e-mail. Attack points exist when data are converted to MIME compatible format and back.
  • Overflow Binary Resource File
    An attack of this type exploits a buffer overflow vulnerability in the handling of binary resources. Binary resources may include music files like MP3, image files like JPEG files, and any other binary file. These attacks may pass unnoticed to the client machine through normal usage of files, such as a browser loading a seemingly innocent JPEG file. This can allow the attacker access to the execution stack and execute arbitrary code in the target process. This attack pattern is a variant of standard buffer overflow attacks using an unexpected vector (binary files) to wrap its attack and open up a new attack vector. The attacker is required to either directly serve the binary content to the victim, or place it in a locale like a MP3 sharing application, for the victim to download. The attacker then is notified upon the download or otherwise locates the vulnerability opened up by the buffer overflow.
  • Buffer Overflow via Symbolic Links
    This type of attack leverages the use of symbolic links to cause buffer overflows. An attacker can try to create or manipulate a symbolic link file such that its contents result in out of bounds data. When the target software processes the symbolic link file, it could potentially overflow internal buffers with insufficient bounds checking.
  • Overflow Variables and Tags
    This type of attack leverages the use of tags or variables from a formatted configuration data to cause buffer overflow. The attacker crafts a malicious HTML page or configuration file that includes oversized strings, thus causing an overflow.
  • Buffer Overflow via Parameter Expansion
    In this attack, the target software is given input that the attacker knows will be modified and expanded in size during processing. This attack relies on the target software failing to anticipate that the expanded data may exceed some internal limit, thereby creating a buffer overflow.
  • Buffer Overflow in an API Call
    This attack targets libraries or shared code modules which are vulnerable to buffer overflow attacks. An attacker who has access to an API may try to embed malicious code in the API function call and exploit a buffer overflow vulnerability in the function's implementation. All clients that make use of the code library thus become vulnerable by association. This has a very broad effect on security across a system, usually affecting more than one software process.
  • Buffer Overflow in Local Command-Line Utilities
    This attack targets command-line utilities available in a number of shells. An attacker can leverage a vulnerability found in a command-line utility to escalate privilege to root.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2007-4567, CVE-2009-4536, CVE-2009-4537, CVE-2009-4538 to the security issues fixed in kernel 2.6.18-164.10.1 The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2006-6304, CVE-2009-2910, CVE-2009-3080, CVE-2009-3556, CVE-2009-3889, CVE-2009-3939, CVE-2009-4020, CVE-2009-4021, CVE-2009-4138, CVE-2009-4141, and CVE-2009-4272 to the security issues fixed in kernel 2.6.18-164.11.1. b. ESXi userworld update for ntp The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used to synchronize the time of a computer client or server to another server or reference time source. A vulnerability in ntpd could allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service (CPU and bandwidth consumption) by using MODE_PRIVATE to send a spoofed (1) request or (2) response packet that triggers a continuous exchange of MODE_PRIVATE error responses between two NTP daemons. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-3563 to this issue. c. Service Console package openssl updated to 0.9.8e-12.el5_4.1 OpenSSL is a toolkit implementing SSL v2/v3 and TLS protocols with full-strength cryptography world-wide. A memory leak in the zlib could allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via vectors that trigger incorrect calls to the CRYPTO_cleanup_all_ex_data function. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-4355 to this issue. A vulnerability was discovered which may 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. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-2409 to this issue. This update also includes security fixes that were first addressed in version openssl-0.9.8e-12.el5.i386.rpm. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-0590, CVE-2009-1377, CVE-2009-1378, CVE-2009-1379, CVE-2009-1386 and CVE-2009-1387 to these issues. d. Service Console update for krb5 to 1.6.1-36.el5_4.1 and pam_krb5 to 2.2.14-15. Kerberos is a network authentication protocol. It is designed to provide strong authentication for client/server applications by using secret-key cryptography. Multiple integer underflows in the AES and RC4 functionality in the crypto library could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code by providing ciphertext with a length that is too short to be valid. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-4212 to this issue. The service console package for pam_krb5 is updated to version pam_krb5-2.2.14-15. This update fixes a flaw found in pam_krb5. In some non-default configurations (specifically, where pam_krb5 would be the first module to prompt for a password), a remote attacker could use this flaw to recognize valid usernames, which would aid a dictionary-based password guess attack. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-1384 to this issue. e. Service Console package bind updated to 9.3.6-4.P1.el5_4.2 BIND (Berkeley Internet Name Daemon) is by far the most widely used Domain Name System (DNS) software on the Internet. A vulnerability was discovered which could allow remote attacker to add the Authenticated Data (AD) flag to a forged NXDOMAIN response for an existing domain. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-0097 to this issue. A vulnerability was discovered which could allow remote attackers to conduct DNS cache poisoning attacks by receiving a recursive client query and sending a response that contains CNAME or DNAME records, which do not have the intended validation before caching. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-0290 to this issue. A vulnerability was found in the way that bind handles out-of- bailiwick data accompanying a secure response without re-fetching from the original source, which could allow remote attackers to have an unspecified impact via a crafted response. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-0382 to this issue. NOTE: ESX does not use the BIND name service daemon by default. f. Service Console package gcc updated to 3.2.3-60 The GNU Compiler Collection includes front ends for C, C++, Objective-C, Fortran, Java, and Ada, as well as libraries for these languages GNU Libtool's ltdl.c attempts to open .la library files in the current working directory. This could allow a local user to gain privileges via a Trojan horse file. The GNU C Compiler collection (gcc) provided in ESX contains a statically linked version of the vulnerable code, and is being replaced. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-3736 to this issue. g. Service Console package gzip update to 1.3.3-15.rhel3 gzip is a software application used for file compression An integer underflow in gzip's unlzw function on 64-bit platforms may allow a remote attacker to trigger an array index error leading to a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted LZW compressed file. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-0001 to this issue. h. Service Console package sudo updated to 1.6.9p17-6.el5_4 Sudo (su 'do') allows a system administrator to delegate authority to give certain users (or groups of users) the ability to run some (or all) commands as root or another user while providing an audit trail of the commands and their arguments. When a pseudo-command is enabled, sudo permits a match between the name of the pseudo-command and the name of an executable file in an arbitrary directory, which allows local users to gain privileges via a crafted executable file. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-0426 to this issue. When the runas_default option is used, sudo does not properly set group memberships, which allows local users to gain privileges via a sudo command. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-0427 to this issue.

    description Updated openssl packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. OpenSSL is a toolkit that implements the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3) and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) protocols, as well as a full-strength, general purpose cryptography library. A flaw was found in the way the TLS/SSL (Transport Layer Security/Secure Sockets Layer) protocols handled session renegotiation. A man-in-the-middle attacker could use this flaw to prefix arbitrary plain text to a client's session (for example, an HTTPS connection to a website). This could force the server to process an attacker's request as if authenticated using the victim's credentials. This update addresses this flaw by implementing the TLS Renegotiation Indication Extension, as defined in RFC 5746. (CVE-2009-3555) Refer to the following Knowledgebase article for additional details about the CVE-2009-3555 flaw: http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-20491 Dan Kaminsky found that browsers could accept certificates with MD2 hash signatures, even though MD2 is no longer considered a cryptographically strong algorithm. This could make it easier for an attacker to create a malicious certificate that would be treated as trusted by a browser. OpenSSL now disables the use of the MD2 algorithm inside signatures by default. (CVE-2009-2409) An input validation flaw was found in the handling of the BMPString and UniversalString ASN1 string types in OpenSSL's ASN1_STRING_print_ex() function. An attacker could use this flaw to create a specially crafted X.509 certificate that could cause applications using the affected function to crash when printing certificate contents. (CVE-2009-0590) Note: The affected function is rarely used. No application shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux calls this function, for example. All OpenSSL users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues. For the update to take effect, all services linked to the OpenSSL library must be restarted, or the system rebooted.

This could force the server to process an attacker's request as if authenticated using the victim's credentials. This update addresses this flaw by implementing the TLS Renegotiation Indication Extension, as defined in RFC 5746. (CVE-2009-3555) Refer to the following Knowledgebase article for additional details about the CVE-2009-3555 flaw: http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-20491 Dan Kaminsky found that browsers could accept certificates with MD2 hash signatures, even though MD2 is no longer considered a cryptographically strong algorithm. This could make it easier for an attacker to create a malicious certificate that would be treated as trusted by a browser. OpenSSL now disables the use of the MD2 algorithm inside signatures by default. (CVE-2009-2409) An input validation flaw was found in the handling of the BMPString and UniversalString ASN1 string types in OpenSSL's ASN1_STRING_print_ex() function. An attacker could use this flaw to create a specially crafted X.509 certificate that could cause applications using the affected function to crash when printing certificate contents. (CVE-2009-0590) Note: The affected function is rarely used. No application shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux calls this function, for example. All OpenSSL users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues. For the update to take effect, all services linked to the OpenSSL library must be restarted, or the system rebooted.

    description a. vMA and Service Console update for newt to 0.52.2-12.el5_4.1 Newt is a programming library for color text mode, widget based user interfaces. Newt can be used to add stacked windows, entry widgets, checkboxes, radio buttons, labels, plain text fields, scrollbars, etc., to text mode user interfaces. A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way newt processes content that is to be displayed in a text dialog box. A local attacker could issue a specially crafted text dialog box display request (direct or via a custom application), leading to a denial of service (application crash) or, potentially, arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running the application using the newt library. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-2905 to this issue. b. vMA and Service Console update for vMA package nfs-utils to 1.0.9-42.el5 The nfs-utils package provides a daemon for the kernel NFS server and related tools. It was discovered that nfs-utils did not use tcp_wrappers correctly. Certain hosts access rules defined in '/etc/hosts.allow' and '/etc/hosts.deny' may not have been honored, possibly allowing remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2008-4552 to this issue. c. vMA and Service Console package glib2 updated to 2.12.3-4.el5_3.1 GLib is the low-level core library that forms the basis for projects such as GTK+ and GNOME. It provides data structure handling for C, portability wrappers, and interfaces for such runtime functionality as an event loop, threads, dynamic loading, and an object system. Multiple integer overflows in glib/gbase64.c in GLib before 2.20 allow context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via a long string that is converted either from or to a base64 representation. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2008-4316 to this issue. d. vMA and Service Console update for openssl to 0.9.8e-12.el5 SSL is a toolkit implementing SSL v2/v3 and TLS protocols with full- strength cryptography world-wide. Multiple denial of service flaws were discovered in OpenSSL's DTLS implementation. A remote attacker could use these flaws to cause a DTLS server to use excessive amounts of memory, or crash on an invalid memory access or NULL pointer dereference. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-1377, CVE-2009-1378, CVE-2009-1379, CVE-2009-1386, CVE-2009-1387 to these issues. An input validation flaw was found in the handling of the BMPString and UniversalString ASN1 string types in OpenSSL's ASN1_STRING_print_ex() function. An attacker could use this flaw to create a specially crafted X.509 certificate that could cause applications using the affected function to crash when printing certificate contents. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-0590 to this issue. e. vMA and Service Console package bind updated to 9.3.6-4.P1.el5_4.1 It was discovered that BIND was incorrectly caching responses without performing proper DNSSEC validation, when those responses were received during the resolution of a recursive client query that requested DNSSEC records but indicated that checking should be disabled. A remote attacker could use this flaw to bypass the DNSSEC validation check and perform a cache poisoning attack if the target BIND server was receiving such client queries. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-4022 to this issue. f. vMA and Service Console package expat updated to 1.95.8-8.3.el5_4.2. Two buffer over-read flaws were found in the way Expat handled malformed UTF-8 sequences when processing XML files. A specially- crafted XML file could cause applications using Expat to fail while parsing the file. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-3560 and CVE-2009-3720 to these issues. g. vMA and Service Console package openssh update to 4.3p2-36.el5_4.2 A Red Hat specific patch used in the openssh packages as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 (RHSA-2009:1287) loosened certain ownership requirements for directories used as arguments for the ChrootDirectory configuration options. A malicious user that also has or previously had non-chroot shell access to a system could possibly use this flaw to escalate their privileges and run commands as any system user. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-2904 to this issue. h. vMA and Service Console package ntp updated to ntp-4.2.2p1-9.el5_4.1.i386.rpm A flaw was discovered in the way ntpd handled certain malformed NTP packets. ntpd logged information about all such packets and replied with an NTP packet that was treated as malformed when received by another ntpd. A remote attacker could use this flaw to create an NTP packet reply loop between two ntpd servers through a malformed packet with a spoofed source IP address and port, causing ntpd on those servers to use excessive amounts of CPU time and fill disk space with log messages. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-3563 to this issue. i. vMA update for package kernel to 2.6.18-164.9.1.el5 Updated vMA package kernel addresses the security issues listed below. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-2849 to the security issue fixed in kernel 2.6.18-128.2.1 The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-2695, CVE-2009-2908, CVE-2009-3228, CVE-2009-3286, CVE-2009-3547, CVE-2009-3613 to the security issues fixed in kernel 2.6.18-128.6.1 The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-3612, CVE-2009-3620, CVE-2009-3621, CVE-2009-3726 to the security issues fixed in kernel 2.6.18-128.9.1 j. vMA 4.0 updates for the packages kpartx, libvolume-id, device-mapper-multipath, fipscheck, dbus, dbus-libs, and ed kpartx updated to 0.4.7-23.el5_3.4, libvolume-id updated to 095-14.20.el5 device-mapper-multipath package updated to 0.4.7-23.el5_3.4, fipscheck updated to 1.0.3-1.el5, dbus updated to 1.1.2-12.el5, dbus-libs updated to 1.1.2-12.el5, and ed package updated to 0.2-39.el5_2.

A remote attacker could use these flaws to cause a DTLS server to use excessive amounts of memory, or crash on an invalid memory access or NULL pointer dereference. (CVE-2009-1377, CVE-2009-1378, CVE-2009-1379, CVE-2009-1386, CVE-2009-1387) Note: These flaws only affect applications that use DTLS. Scientific Linux does not ship any DTLS client or server applications. An input validation flaw was found in the handling of the BMPString and UniversalString ASN1 string types in OpenSSL's ASN1_STRING_print_ex() function. An attacker could use this flaw to create a specially crafted X.509 certificate that could cause applications using the affected function to crash when printing certificate contents. (CVE-2009-0590) Note: The affected function is rarely used. No application shipped with Scientific Linux calls this function, for example. These updated packages also fix the following bugs : - 'openssl smime -verify -in' verifies the signature of the input file and the '-verify' switch expects a signed or encrypted input file. Previously, running openssl on an S/MIME file that was not encrypted or signed caused openssl to segfault. With this update, the input file is now checked for a signature or encryption. Consequently, openssl now returns an error and quits when attempting to verify an unencrypted or unsigned S/MIME file. (BZ#472440) - when generating RSA keys, pairwise tests were called even in non-FIPS mode. This prevented small keys from being generated. With this update, generating keys in non-FIPS mode no longer calls the pairwise tests and keys as small as 32-bits can be generated in this mode. Note: In FIPS mode, pairwise tests are still called and keys generated in this mode must still be 1024-bits or larger. (BZ#479817) As well, these updated packages add the following enhancements : - both the libcrypto and libssl shared libraries, which are part of the OpenSSL FIPS module, are now checked for integrity on initialization of FIPS mode. (BZ#475798) - an issuing Certificate Authority (CA) allows multiple certificate templates to inherit the CA's Common Name (CN). Because this CN is used as a unique identifier, each template had to have its own Certificate Revocation List (CRL). With this update, multiple CRLs with the same subject name can now be stored in a X509_STORE structure, with their signature field being used to distinguish between them. (BZ#457134) - the fipscheck library is no longer needed for rebuilding the openssl source RPM. (BZ#475798)

OpenSSL is a toolkit that implements the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3) and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) protocols, as well as a full-strength, general purpose cryptography library. A flaw was found in the way the TLS/SSL (Transport Layer Security/Secure Sockets Layer) protocols handled session renegotiation. A man-in-the-middle attacker could use this flaw to prefix arbitrary plain text to a client's session (for example, an HTTPS connection to a website). This could force the server to process an attacker's request as if authenticated using the victim's credentials. This update addresses this flaw by implementing the TLS Renegotiation Indication Extension, as defined in RFC 5746. (CVE-2009-3555) Refer to the following Knowledgebase article for additional details about the CVE-2009-3555 flaw: http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-20491 Dan Kaminsky found that browsers could accept certificates with MD2 hash signatures, even though MD2 is no longer considered a cryptographically strong algorithm. This could make it easier for an attacker to create a malicious certificate that would be treated as trusted by a browser. OpenSSL now disables the use of the MD2 algorithm inside signatures by default. (CVE-2009-2409) An input validation flaw was found in the handling of the BMPString and UniversalString ASN1 string types in OpenSSL's ASN1_STRING_print_ex() function. An attacker could use this flaw to create a specially crafted X.509 certificate that could cause applications using the affected function to crash when printing certificate contents. (CVE-2009-0590) Note: The affected function is rarely used. No application shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux calls this function, for example. All OpenSSL users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues. For the update to take effect, all services linked to the OpenSSL library must be restarted, or the system rebooted.

    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2009-1335.NASL
    description Updated openssl packages that fix several security issues, various bugs, and add enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. OpenSSL is a toolkit that implements the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3) and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) protocols, as well as a full-strength general purpose cryptography library. Datagram TLS (DTLS) is a protocol based on TLS that is capable of securing datagram transport (for example, UDP). Multiple denial of service flaws were discovered in OpenSSL's DTLS implementation. A remote attacker could use these flaws to cause a DTLS server to use excessive amounts of memory, or crash on an invalid memory access or NULL pointer dereference. (CVE-2009-1377, CVE-2009-1378, CVE-2009-1379, CVE-2009-1386, CVE-2009-1387) Note: These flaws only affect applications that use DTLS. Red Hat does not ship any DTLS client or server applications in Red Hat Enterprise Linux. An input validation flaw was found in the handling of the BMPString and UniversalString ASN1 string types in OpenSSL's ASN1_STRING_print_ex() function. An attacker could use this flaw to create a specially crafted X.509 certificate that could cause applications using the affected function to crash when printing certificate contents. (CVE-2009-0590) Note: The affected function is rarely used. No application shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux calls this function, for example. These updated packages also fix the following bugs : * 'openssl smime -verify -in' verifies the signature of the input file and the '-verify' switch expects a signed or encrypted input file. Previously, running openssl on an S/MIME file that was not encrypted or signed caused openssl to segfault. With this update, the input file is now checked for a signature or encryption. Consequently, openssl now returns an error and quits when attempting to verify an unencrypted or unsigned S/MIME file. (BZ#472440) * when generating RSA keys, pairwise tests were called even in non-FIPS mode. This prevented small keys from being generated. With this update, generating keys in non-FIPS mode no longer calls the pairwise tests and keys as small as 32-bits can be generated in this mode. Note: In FIPS mode, pairwise tests are still called and keys generated in this mode must still be 1024-bits or larger. (BZ#479817) As well, these updated packages add the following enhancements : * both the libcrypto and libssl shared libraries, which are part of the OpenSSL FIPS module, are now checked for integrity on initialization of FIPS mode. (BZ#475798) * an issuing Certificate Authority (CA) allows multiple certificate templates to inherit the CA's Common Name (CN). Because this CN is used as a unique identifier, each template had to have its own Certificate Revocation List (CRL). With this update, multiple CRLs with the same subject name can now be stored in a X509_STORE structure, with their signature field being used to distinguish between them. (BZ#457134) * the fipscheck library is no longer needed for rebuilding the openssl source RPM. (BZ#475798) OpenSSL users should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues and add these enhancements.
