DoS (Denial of Service)
This includes vulnerabilities ranging from excessive resource consumption (e.g. causing a system to use a lot of memory) to crashing an application or an entire system.
This covers vulnerabilities where malicious people are able to gain system access and execute arbitrary code with the privileges of a local user.
This covers vulnerabilities or security issues where malicious users or people can bypass certain security mechanisms of the application.
The actual impact varies significantly depending on the design and purpose of the affected application.
HP has issued an update for OpenSSL in HP-UX. This fixes multiple vulnerabilities, which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions, cause a DoS (Denial of Service), and potentially compromise a vulnerable system.
The vulnerabilities are reported in HP-UX versions B.11.11, B.11.23, and B.11.31 running OpenSSL versions prior to vA.00.09.08w.
B.11.11 PA (32 and 64):
B.11.23 (PA and IA):
B.11.31 (PA and IA):
