SUMMARY:

    OpenSSL vulnerabilities were disclosed on January 28, 2016 by the OpenSSL
    Project. OpenSSL is used by AIX. AIX has addressed the applicable CVEs.


===============================================================================

VULNERABILITY DETAILS:
    
    CVEID: CVE-2015-3197
    DESCRIPTION: A malicious client can negotiate SSLv2 ciphers that have been 
        disabled on the server and complete SSLv2 handshakes even if all SSLv2 
        ciphers have been disabled, provided that the SSLv2 protocol was not 
        disabled via SSL_OP_NO_SSLv2.
    CVSS Base Score: 5.4
    CVSS Temporal Score: See 
        https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/110235 for the 
        current score
    CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
    CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:N)
    
    CVEID: CVE-2015-4000
    DESCRIPTION: A previously published vulnerability in the TLS protocol 
        allows a man-in-the-middle attacker to downgrade vulnerable TLS 
        connections using ephemeral Diffie-Hellman key exchange to 512-bit 
        export-grade cryptography. This vulnerability is known as 'Logjam'.
	    AIX OpenSSL had the Logjam mitigation for TLS clients by rejecting 
	    handshakes with DH parameters shorter than 768 bits. This limit has 
        now been increased to 1024 bits.
    CVSS Base Score: 4.3
    CVSS Temporal Score: See 
        https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/103294 for the 
        current score
    CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
    CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)


    AFFECTED PRODUCTS AND VERSIONS:
 
        AIX 5.3, 6.1, 7.1, 7.2
        VIOS 2.2.x

        The following fileset levels are vulnerable:
        
        key_fileset = osrcaix

        Fileset          Lower Level  Upper Level KEY 
        --------------------------------------------------
        openssl.base     0.9.8.401    0.9.8.2506  key_w_fs
        openssl.base     1.0.1.500    1.0.1.515   key_w_fs

        Note:  to find out whether the affected filesets are installed 
        on your systems, refer to the lslpp command found in AIX user's guide.

        Example:  lslpp -L | grep -i openssl.base

    REMEDIATION:

        A. FIXES

            Fixes are available.
            
            The fixes can be downloaded via ftp or http from:

            ftp://aix.software.ibm.com/aix/efixes/security/openssl_fix17.tar
            http://aix.software.ibm.com/aix/efixes/security/openssl_fix17.tar
            https://aix.software.ibm.com/aix/efixes/security/openssl_fix17.tar 

            The link above is to a tar file containing this signed
            advisory, fix packages, and OpenSSL signatures for each package.
            The fixes below include prerequisite checking. This will
            enforce the correct mapping between the fixes and AIX
            Technology Levels.
            
            Note that the tar file contains Interim fixes that are based on 
            OpenSSL version, and AIX OpenSSL fixes are cumulative.

            To extract the fixes from the tar file:

            tar xvf openssl_fix17.tar
            cd openssl_fix17

            Verify you have retrieved the fixes intact:

            The checksums below were generated using the
            "openssl dgst -sha256 file" command as the followng:

            openssl dgst -sha256

            These sums should match exactly. The OpenSSL signatures in the tar
            file and on this advisory can also be used to verify the
            integrity of the fixes.  If the sums or signatures cannot be
            confirmed, contact IBM AIX Security at
            security-alert@austin.ibm.com and describe the discrepancy.

        B. FIX AND INTERIM FIX INSTALLATION

            IMPORTANT: If possible, it is recommended that a mksysb backup
            of the system be created.  Verify it is both bootable and
            readable before proceeding.

            To preview a fix installation:

            installp -a -d fix_name -p all  # where fix_name is the name of the
                                        # fix package being previewed.
            To install a fix package:

            installp -a -d fix_name -X all  # where fix_name is the name of the
                                        # fix package being installed.

            Interim fixes have had limited functional and regression
            testing but not the full regression testing that takes place
            for Service Packs; however, IBM does fully support them.

            Interim fix management documentation can be found at:

           
http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/sas/f/aix.efixmgmt/home.html

            To preview an interim fix installation:

            emgr -e ipkg_name -p         # where ipkg_name is the name of the
                                         # interim fix package being previewed.

            To install an interim fix package:

            emgr -e ipkg_name -X         # where ipkg_name is the name of the
                                         # interim fix package being installed.


    WORKAROUNDS AND MITIGATIONS:

        None.
