Ubuntu Security Notice 2639-1 - Praveen Kariyanahalli, Ivan Fratric and Felix Groebert discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly handled memory when buffering DTLS data. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause OpenSSL to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. Joseph Barr-Pixton discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly handled malformed ECParameters structures. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause OpenSSL to hang, resulting in a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.

openssl vulnerabilities
============================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 15.04
- Ubuntu 14.10
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in OpenSSL.

Software Description:
- openssl: Secure Socket Layer (SSL) cryptographic library and tools

Details:

Praveen Kariyanahalli, Ivan Fratric and Felix Groebert discovered that
OpenSSL incorrectly handled memory when buffering DTLS data. A remote
attacker could use this issue to cause OpenSSL to crash, resulting in a
denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-8176)

Joseph Barr-Pixton discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly handled malformed
ECParameters structures. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause
OpenSSL to hang, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2015-1788)

Robert Swiecki and Hanno B=C3=B6ck discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly handled
certain ASN1_TIME strings. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause
OpenSSL to crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2015-1789)

Michal Zalewski discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly handled missing content
when parsing ASN.1-encoded PKCS#7 blobs. A remote attacker could use this
issue to cause OpenSSL to crash, resulting in a denial of service.
(CVE-2015-1790)

Emilia K=C3=A4sper discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly handled NewSessionTicket
when being used by a multi-threaded client. A remote attacker could use
this issue to cause OpenSSL to crash, resulting in a denial of service.
(CVE-2015-1791)

Johannes Bauer discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly handled verifying
signedData messages using the CMS code. A remote attacker could use this
issue to cause OpenSSL to hang, resulting in a denial of service.
(CVE-2015-1792)

As a security improvement, this update also modifies OpenSSL behaviour to
reject DH key sizes below 768 bits, preventing a possible downgrade
attack.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 15.04:
libssl1.0.0 1.0.1f-1ubuntu11.4

Ubuntu 14.10:
libssl1.0.0 1.0.1f-1ubuntu9.8

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
libssl1.0.0 1.0.1f-1ubuntu2.15

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
libssl1.0.0 1.0.1-4ubuntu5.31

After a standard system update you need to reboot your computer to make
all the necessary changes.
