USN-1064-1: OpenSSL vulnerability

15 February 2011




Neel Mehta discovered that incorrectly formatted ClientHello handshake
messages could cause OpenSSL to parse past the end of the message.
This could allow a remote attacker to cause a crash and denial of
service by triggering invalid memory accesses.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 10.10
Ubuntu 10.04

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