Status Candidate


There is an overflow bug in the AVX2 Montgomery multiplication procedure used in exponentiation with 1024-bit moduli. No EC algorithms are affected. Analysis suggests that attacks against RSA and DSA as a result of this defect would be very difficult to perform and are not believed likely. Attacks against DH1024 are considered just feasible, because most of the work necessary to deduce information about a private key may be performed offline. The amount of resources required for such an attack would be significant. However, for an attack on TLS to be meaningful, the server would have to share the DH1024 private key among multiple clients, which is no longer an option since CVE-2016-0701. This only affects processors that support the AVX2 but not ADX extensions like Intel Haswell (4th generation). Note: The impact from this issue is similar to CVE-2017-3736, CVE-2017-3732 and CVE-2015-3193. OpenSSL version 1.0.2-1.0.2m and 1.1.0-1.1.0g are affected. Fixed in OpenSSL 1.0.2n. Due to the low severity of this issue we are not issuing a new release of OpenSSL 1.1.0 at this time. The fix will be included in OpenSSL 1.1.0h when it becomes available. The fix is also available in commit e502cc86d in the OpenSSL git repository.

Authored by Ubuntu | Site

Ubuntu Security Notice 3512-1 - David Benjamin discovered that OpenSSL did not correctly prevent buggy applications that ignore handshake errors from subsequently calling certain functions. It was discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly performed the x86_64 Montgomery multiplication procedure. While unlikely, a remote attacker could possibly use this issue to recover private keys.

FreeBSD Security Advisory - FreeBSD-SA-17:12.openssl
Posted Dec 12, 2017

FreeBSD Security Advisory - Invoking SSL_read()/SSL_write() while in an error state causes data to be passed without being decrypted/encrypted directly from the SSL/TLS record layer. In order to exploit this issue an application bug would have to be present that resulted in a call to SSL_read()/SSL_write() being issued after having already received a fatal error. Various other issues were addressed.
