ID CVE-2010-2939
Summary Double free vulnerability in the ssl3_get_key_exchange function in the OpenSSL client (ssl/s3_clnt.c) in OpenSSL 1.0.0a, 0.9.8, 0.9.7, and possibly other versions, when using ECDH, allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted private key with an invalid prime. NOTE: some sources refer to this as a use-after-free issue.

    description It was discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly handled return codes from the bn_wexpand function calls. A remote attacker could trigger this flaw in services that used SSL to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code with application privileges. This issue only affected Ubuntu 6.06 LTS, 8.04 LTS, 9.04 and 9.10. (CVE-2009-3245) It was discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly handled certain private keys with an invalid prime. A remote attacker could trigger this flaw in services that used SSL to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code with application privileges. The default compiler options for affected releases should reduce the vulnerability to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-2939). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details. Impact : A context-dependent attacker could cause a Denial of Service, possibly execute arbitrary code, bypass intended key requirements, force the downgrade to unintended ciphers, bypass the need for knowledge of shared secrets and successfully authenticate, bypass CRL validation, or obtain sensitive information in applications that use OpenSSL. Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time.

The impact of this vulnerability is not clear; arbitrary code could be run too. Note that OpenSSL changelog only reports a fix for 0.9.8p. 1.0.0a is definitely vulnerable. Gentoo reports a fix for 1.0.0e but it covers other flaws.NVD reports 0.9.7 as vulnerable too but does not give any fixed version.

(CVE-2010-2531) - A double free vulnerability in the 'ssl3_get_key_exchange()' function in the third-party OpenSSL library could be abused to crash the application. (CVE-2010-2939) - A format string vulnerability in the phar extension in the bundled version of PHP could lead to the disclosure of memory contents and possibly allow execution of arbitrary code via a specially crafted 'phar://' URI. (CVE-2010-2950) - A NULL pointer dereference in 'ZipArchive::getArchiveComment' included with the bundled version of PHP can be abused to crash the application. (CVE-2010-3709) - The bundled version of libxml2 may read from invalid memory locations when processing malformed XPath expressions, resulting in an application crash. (CVE-2010-4008) - An error in the 'mb_strcut()' function in the bundled version of PHP can be exploited by passing a large 'length' parameter to disclose potentially sensitive information from the heap.
