Sun Alert 102711 Security Vulnerabilities in OpenSSL May Lead to a Denial of Service (DoS) to Applications or Execution of Arbitrary Code With Elevated Privileges

Guest Author
Product: Solaris 10 Operating System

Two security vulnerabilities in the OpenSSL product (see openssl(5)) shipped with Solaris 10 may affect applications which make use of this product. Depending on the individual application, the first issue may allow a local or remote unprivileged user to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.

The second issue may allow a remote user who controls a server to which an application connects to crash that application, causing a Denial of Service (DoS) condition.

These issues are also referenced in the following documents:
