                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Moderate: python-cryptography security, bug fix, and enhancement update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2021:1608-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL:      https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2021:1608

CVE Names:         CVE-2020-25659 CVE-2020-36242 
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for python-cryptography is now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 8.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from
the CVE link(s) in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux BaseOS (v. 8) - aarch64, ppc64le, s390x, x86_64

3. Description:

The python-cryptography packages contain a Python Cryptographic Authority's
(PyCA's) cryptography library, which provides cryptographic primitives and
recipes to Python developers.

The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version:
python-cryptography (3.2.1). (BZ#1873581, BZ#1891947)

Security Fix(es):

* python-cryptography: bleichenbacher timing oracle attack against RSA
decryption (CVE-2020-25659)

* python-cryptography: certain sequences of update() calls when
symmetrically encrypting very large payloads could result in an integer
overflow and lead to buffer overflows (CVE-2020-36242)

For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS
score, acknowledgments, and other related information, refer to the CVE
page(s) listed in the References section.

Additional Changes:

For detailed information on changes in this release, see the Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 8.4 Release Notes linked from the References section.
