DESCRIPTION:
A weakness has been reported in MatrixSSL, which can be exploited by
malicious people to disclose potentially sensitive information and
hijack a user's session.

The weakness is caused due to a design error in the Secure Sockets
Layer 3.0 (SSL) and Transport Layer Security 1.0 (TLS) protocols when
selecting a Initialization Vector (IV) used with symmetric cipher
suites in CBC mode (e.g. AES). This can be exploited to conduct a
chosen-plaintext attack which would allow the decryption of e.g HTTPS
sessions via a Man-in-the-Middle (MitM) attack.

The weakness is reported in versions prior to 3.2.2.

SOLUTION:
Update to version 3.2.2 and use the "USE_BEAST_WORKAROUND" compile
time define (default).

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
Reported by Thai Duong and Juliano Rizzo.
