Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 3692-1 - Keegan Ryan discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly handled ECDSA key generation. An attacker could possibly use this issue to perform a cache-timing attack and recover private ECDSA keys. Guido Vranken discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly handled very large prime values during a key agreement. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to consume resources, leading to a denial of service. Alejandro Cabrera Aldaya, Billy Brumley, Cesar Pereida Garcia and Luis Manuel Alvarez Tapia discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly handled RSA key generation. An attacker could possibly use this issue to perform a cache-timing attack and recover private RSA keys. Various other issues were also addressed.
