Updated openssl package fix two security vulnerabilitiesPublication date: 08 Apr 2014
Affected Mageia releases : 3 , 4
CVE: CVE-2014-0076 , CVE-2014-0160
Updated openssl packages fix security vulnerability: The Montgomery ladder implementation in OpenSSL through 1.0.0l does not ensure that certain swap operations have a constant-time behavior, which makes it easier for local users to obtain ECDSA nonces via a FLUSH+RELOAD cache side-channel attack (CVE-2014-0076). A missing bounds check in the handling of the TLS heartbeat extension in OpenSSL through 1.0.1f can be used to reveal up to 64k of memory to a connected client or server (CVE-2014-0160).
