    1. Summary:
    
    Updated openssl packages that fix three security issues are now available
    for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
    
    The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
    important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
    scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each
    vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

    3. Description:
    
    OpenSSL is a toolkit that implements the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3)
    and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) protocols, as well as a
    full-strength, general purpose cryptography library.
    
    A flaw was found in the way OpenSSL determined which hashing algorithm to
    use when TLS protocol version 1.2 was enabled. This could possibly cause
    OpenSSL to use an incorrect hashing algorithm, leading to a crash of an
    application using the library. (CVE-2013-6449)
    
    It was discovered that the Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS)
    protocol implementation in OpenSSL did not properly maintain encryption and
    digest contexts during renegotiation. A lost or discarded renegotiation
    handshake packet could cause a DTLS client or server using OpenSSL to
    crash. (CVE-2013-6450)
    
    A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way OpenSSL handled
    TLS/SSL protocol handshake packets. A specially crafted handshake packet
    could cause a TLS/SSL client using OpenSSL to crash. (CVE-2013-4353)
    
    All OpenSSL users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
    contain backported patches to correct these issues. For the update to take
    effect, all services linked to the OpenSSL library must be restarted, or
    the system rebooted.
    
    4. Solution:
    
    Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
    relevant to your system have been applied.
    
    This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
    use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
    https://access.redhat.com/site/articles/11258
    
    5. Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
    
    1045363 - CVE-2013-6449 openssl: crash when using TLS 1.2 caused by use of incorrect hash algorithm
    1047840 - CVE-2013-6450 openssl: crash in DTLS renegotiation after packet loss
    1049058 - CVE-2013-4353 openssl: client NULL dereference crash on malformed handshake packets
