Vulnerability identifier: #VU13325
Vulnerability risk: Low
Exploitation vector: Network
Exploit availability: No
Vendor: OpenSSL Software Foundation
The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to cause DoS condition on the target system.
The vulnerability exists due to improper handling of large prime values by the affected software during key agreement operations in a Transport Layer Security (TLS) handshake using an Ephemeral Diffie-Hellman (DHE) based cipher suite. A remote attacker can send a large prime value from a malicious OpenSSL server to a targeted OpenSSL client and cause the client to stop responding while generating a key for the prime value.
Update to versions 1.1.0i or 1.0.2p.
