Updated openssl packages that fix one security issue are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Moderate security
impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the
References section.

OpenSSL is a toolkit that implements the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3)
and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) protocols, as well as a
full-strength, general purpose cryptography library.

A memory leak vulnerability was found in the way OpenSSL parsed PKCS#7 and
CMS data. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause an application
that parses PKCS#7 or CMS data from untrusted sources to use an excessive
amount of memory and possibly crash. (CVE-2015-3195)

All openssl users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue. For the update to take
effect, all services linked to the OpenSSL library must be restarted, or
the system rebooted.
