Abstract
========

OpenSSL had multiple vulnerabilities, they were found by tests performed
by NISCC (www.niscc.gov.uk).

- - ASN.1 decoder could overrun its stack if a malicious X.509 certificate
is received

- - malfomed X.509 certificates could cause crashes under certain
circumstances

The vulnerability can be attacked remotely, even if SSL client
authentication is not enabled.

Note that OpenSSH is not affected by this issue, as it does not use the
OpenSSL ASN.1 decoder.

Solutions and Workarounds
=========================

A rebuild of libcrypto and libssl is necessary.  If you have installed
any program that statically links one of those libraries, it must be
rebuilt too.

If you have daemons that use those libraries, any running instances must
be restarted.  A reboot after replacing libcrypto/libssl is recommended.

The following instructions describe how to upgrade your libcrypto/libssl
binaries by updating your source tree and rebuilding and
installing a new version of libcrypto/libssl.

* NetBSD-current:

	Systems running NetBSD-current dated from before 2003-10-02
	should be upgraded to NetBSD-current dated 2003-10-03 or later.

	The following directories need to be updated from the
	netbsd-current CVS branch (aka HEAD):
		crypto/dist/openssl

	To update from CVS, re-build, and re-install libcrypto and libssl:

		# cd src
		# cvs update -d -P crypto/dist/openssl

		# cd lib/libcrypto
		# make USETOOLS=no cleandir dependall
		# make USETOOLS=no install

		# cd ../../lib/libssl
		# make USETOOLS=no cleandir dependall
		# make USETOOLS=no install

* NetBSD 1.6, 1.6.1:

	The binary distribution of NetBSD 1.6 and 1.6.1 are vulnerable.

	Systems running NetBSD 1.6 sources dated from before
	2003-10-02 should be upgraded from NetBSD 1.6 sources dated
	2003-10-03 or later.

	NetBSD 1.6.2 will include the fix.

	The following directories need to be updated from the
	netbsd-1-6 CVS branch:
		crypto/dist/openssl

	To update from CVS, re-build, and re-install libcrypto and libssl:

		# cd src
		# cvs update -d -P -r netbsd-1-6 crypto/dist/openssl

		# cd lib/libcrypto
		# make USETOOLS=no cleandir dependall
		# make USETOOLS=no install

		# cd ../../lib/libssl
		# make USETOOLS=no cleandir dependall
		# make USETOOLS=no install


* NetBSD 1.5, 1.5.1, 1.5.2, 1.5.3:

	The binary distribution of NetBSD 1.5 to 1.5.3 are vulnerable.   

	Systems running NetBSD 1.5, 1.5.1, 1.5.2, or 1.5.3 sources dated
	from before 2003-10-03 should be upgraded from NetBSD 1.5.*
	sources dated 2003-10-04 or later.

	The following directories need to be updated from the
	netbsd-1-5 CVS branch:
		crypto/dist/openssl

	To update from CVS, re-build, and re-install libcrypto and libssl:

		# cd src
		# cvs update -d -P -r netbsd-1-5 crypto/dist/openssl

		# cd lib/libcrypto
		# make cleandir dependall
		# make install

		# cd ../../lib/libssl
		# make cleandir dependall
		# make install
