Announcement ID: SUSE-SU-2018:2036-1
Rating: moderate
References: #1097158 #1097624 #1098592
Affected Products:
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Basesystem 15

  • An update that solves one vulnerability and has two fixes is now available.


    This update for openssl-1_1 fixes the following issues:

    - CVE-2018-0732: During key agreement in a TLS handshake using a DH(E)
    based ciphersuite a malicious server could have sent a very large prime
    value to the client. This caused the client to spend an unreasonably
    long period of time generating a key for this prime resulting in a hang
    until the client has finished. This could be exploited in a Denial Of
    Service attack (bsc#1097158).
    - Blinding enhancements for ECDSA and DSA (bsc#1097624, bsc#1098592)
