In particular the Apache HTTP server (which never uses OpenSSLinternal caching) and Stunnel (which includes its own workaround) are NOTaffected.This upgrade fixes this issue. After the upgrade, any services using theopenssl libraries need to be restarted. The checkrestart script from thedebian-goodies package or lsof can help to find out which services needto be restarted.A note to users of the tor packages from the Debian backports or Debianvolatile: This openssl update causes problems with some versions of tor.You need to update to tor 0.2.1.26-4~bpo50+1 or 0.2.1.26-1~lennyvolatile2,respectively. The tor package version 0.2.0.35-1~lenny2 from Debian stableis not affected by these problems.

Under some circumstances, thiscan negate the incremental security benefit of using a single-useauthentication mechanism token.MIT krb5 incorrectly accepts RFC 3961 key-derivation checksums usingRC4 keys when verifying KRB-SAFE messages: An unauthenticated remoteattacker has a 1/256 chance of forging KRB-SAFE messages in anapplication protocol if the targeted pre-existing session uses an RC4session key.

The Common Vulnerabilitiesand Exposures project identifies the following problems:CVE-2010-3762 When DNSSEC validation is enabled, BIND does not properly handle certain bad signatures if multiple trust anchors exist for a single zone, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (server crash) via a DNS query.CVE-2010-3614 BIND does not properly determine the security status of an NS RRset during a DNSKEY algorithm rollover, which may lead to zone unavailability during rollovers.CVE-2010-3613 BIND does not properly handle the combination of signed negative responses and corresponding RRSIG records in the cache, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (server crash) via a query for cached data.In addition, this security update improves compatibility withpreviously installed versions of the bind9 package. As a result, itis necessary to initiate the update with "apt-get dist-upgrade"instead of "apt-get update".
