Bitvise Information for VU#997481

Cryptographic libraries and applications do not adequately defend against timing attacks


Not Affected

Vendor Statement

Our SSH2 server and client products, WinSSHD and Tunnelier, are not vulnerable as they perform no RSA private key operations. Our SSH2 library, sshlib, is also not vulnerable as it implements RSA signatures only, with an RSA implementation which uses a different exponentiation algorithm than targeted by this attack.

Vendor Information

The vendor has not provided us with any further information regarding this vulnerability.
