Package        : openssl095
Vulnerability  : ASN.1 parsing vulnerability
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE references : CAN-2003-0543 CAN-2003-0544 CAN-2003-0545

Steve Henson of the OpenSSL core team identified and prepared fixes
for a number of vulnerabilities in the OpenSSL ASN1 code that were
discovered after running a test suite by British National
Infrastructure Security Coordination Centre (NISCC).

A bug in OpenSSLs SSL/TLS protocol was also identified which causes
OpenSSL to parse a client certificate from an SSL/TLS client when it
should reject it as a protocol error.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
following problems:


   Integer overflow in OpenSSL that allows remote attackers to cause a
   denial of service (crash) via an SSL client certificate with
   certain ASN.1 tag values.


   OpenSSL does not properly track the number of characters in certain
   ASN.1 inputs, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
   service (crash) via an SSL client certificate that causes OpenSSL
   to read past the end of a buffer when the long form is used.


   Double-free vulnerability allows remote attackers to cause a denial
   of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via an SSL
   client certificate with a certain invalid ASN.1 encoding.  This bug
   was only present in OpenSSL 0.9.7 and is listed here only for

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
fixed in openssl095 version 0.9.5a-6.woody.3.

This package is not present in the unstable (sid) or testing (sarge)

We recommend that you upgrade your libssl095a packages and restart
services using this library.  Debian doesn't ship any packages that
are linked against this library.

The following commandline (courtesy of Ray Dassen) produces a list of
names of running processes that have libssl095 mapped into their
memory space:

    find /proc -name maps -exec egrep -l 'libssl095' {} /dev/null \; \
    | sed -e 's/[^0-9]//g' | xargs --no-run-if-empty ps --no-headers -p | \
    sed -e 's/^\+//' -e 's/ \+/ /g' | cut -d ' ' -f 5 | sort | uniq

You should restart the associated services.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
