Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3512-1
December 11, 2017

openssl vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- - Ubuntu 17.10
- - Ubuntu 17.04
- - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in OpenSSL.

Software Description:
- - openssl: Secure Socket Layer (SSL) cryptographic library and tools

Details:

David Benjamin discovered that OpenSSL did not correctly prevent
buggy applications that ignore handshake errors from subsequently calling
certain functions. (CVE-2017-3737)

It was discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly performed the x86_64 Montgomery
multiplication procedure. While unlikely, a remote attacker could possibly
use this issue to recover private keys. (CVE-2017-3738)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 17.10:
  libssl1.0.0                     1.0.2g-1ubuntu13.3

Ubuntu 17.04:
  libssl1.0.0                     1.0.2g-1ubuntu11.4

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
  libssl1.0.0                     1.0.2g-1ubuntu4.10

After a standard system update you need to reboot your computer to make
all the necessary changes.
