Details

USN-4376-1 fixed several vulnerabilities in OpenSSL. This update provides
the corresponding update for Ubuntu 12.04 ESM and Ubuntu 14.04 ESM.

Original advisory details:

Cesar Pereida GarcĂ­a, Sohaib ul Hassan, Nicola Tuveri, Iaroslav Gridin,
Alejandro Cabrera Aldaya, and Billy Brumley discovered that OpenSSL
incorrectly handled ECDSA signatures. An attacker could possibly use this
issue to perform a timing side-channel attack and recover private ECDSA
keys. (CVE-2019-1547)

Juraj Somorovsky, Robert Merget, and Nimrod Aviram discovered that certain
applications incorrectly used OpenSSL and could be exposed to a padding
oracle attack. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to decrypt
data. (CVE-2019-1559)

Bernd Edlinger discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly handled certain
decryption functions. In certain scenarios, a remote attacker could
possibly use this issue to perform a padding oracle attack and decrypt
traffic. (CVE-2019-1563)
