<synopsis>A vulnerability in stunnel might allow remote attackers to gain
access to private key information.
<product type="ebuild">stunnel</product>

<vulnerable range="lt">5.02</vulnerable>
<p>The stunnel program is designed to work as an SSL encryption wrapper
between a client and a local or remote server.
<p>stunnel does not properly update the state of the pseudo-random
generator after fork-threading which causes subsequent children with the
same process ID to use the same entropy pool. ECDSA and DSA keys, when
not used in deterministic mode (RFC6979), rely on random data for its k
parameter to not leak private key information.
<impact type="normal">
<p>A remote attacker may gain access to private key information from ECDSA
or DSA keys.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All stunnel users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=net-misc/stunnel-5.02"
