Novell Filr 2.0


The AES-NI implementation in OpenSSL before 1.0.1t and 1.0.2 before 1.0.2h does not consider memory allocation during a certain padding check, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive cleartext information via a padding-oracle attack against an AES CBC session. NOTE: This vulnerability exists because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2013-0169.

Novell Filr 2.0 is affected since it uses openSSL 1.0.1g-0.35.1.


A fix for this issue is available in the Filr 2.0 Security Update 2, available via the Novell Patch Finder.
