GNU Libgcrypt Information for VU#888801
SSL/TLS implementations disclose side channel information via PKCS #1 v1.5 version number extension
- Vendor Information Help Date Notified:
- Statement Date:
- Date Updated: 22 Apr 2003
Libgcrypt only recently provides pkcs#1 creation within the library but there is no pkcs#1 parsing yet implemented. So Libgcrypt itself is too dumb to be affected. GnuPG is not affected because it is a store and forward system and not easily usable in an online setting.
The vendor has not provided us with any further information regarding this vulnerability.
