    Synopsis:          Important: openssl security update
    Advisory ID:       RHSA-2014:0624-01
    Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
    Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2014-0624.html
    Issue date:        2014-06-05
    CVE Names:         CVE-2014-0224 
    =====================================================================
    
    1. Summary:
    
    Updated openssl packages that fix one security issue are now available for
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
    
    The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
    Important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
    base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the
    CVE link in the References section.
    
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:
    
    RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, s390x, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
    
    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.
    
    It was found that OpenSSL clients and servers could be forced, via a
    specially crafted handshake packet, to use weak keying material for
    communication. A man-in-the-middle attacker could use this flaw to decrypt
    and modify traffic between a client and a server. (CVE-2014-0224)
    
    Note: In order to exploit this flaw, both the server and the client must be
    using a vulnerable version of OpenSSL; the server must be using OpenSSL
    version 1.0.1 and above, and the client must be using any version of
    OpenSSL. For more information about this flaw, refer to:
    https://access.redhat.com/site/articles/904433
    
    Red Hat would like to thank the OpenSSL project for reporting this issue.
    Upstream acknowledges KIKUCHI Masashi of Lepidum as the original reporter
    of this issue.
    
    All OpenSSL users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
    contain a backported patch to correct this issue. For the update to take
    effect, all services linked to the OpenSSL library (such as httpd and other
    SSL-enabled services) 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
