Posted by Team   
Mandrake OpenSSL has been found to vulnerable to a timing-based attack on CBC ciphersuites used in SSL and TLS.


                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory

Package name:           openssl
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2003:020
Date:                   February 21st, 2003

Affected versions:      7.2, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, 9.0,
                        Multi Network Firewall 8.2,
                        Single Network Firewall 7.2

Problem Description:

 In an upcoming paper, Brice Canvel (EPFL), Alain Hiltgen (UBS), Serge
 Vaudenay (EPFL), and Martin Vuagnoux (EPFL, Ilion) describe and
 demonstrate a timing-based attack on CBC ciphersuites in SSL and TLS.

 New versions of openssl have been released in response to this
 vulnerability (0.9.6i and 0.9.7a).  The openssl released with
 Linux-Mandrake 7.2 and Single Network Firewall 7.2 has been patched to
 correct this issue.
