As far as we can tell, your message did not provide a link to a whitepaper, and any attachment did not arrive either through direct email or in any of the oss-security list archives. > It seems nettle is also vulnerable to this flaw. Which was confirmed by > upstream via: > https://lists.lysator.liu.se/pipermail/nettle-bugs/2016/003093.html > > The above link also contains a proposed patch, will be committed soon. We think the commit already occurred: https://git.lysator.liu.se/nettle/nettle/commit/3fe1d6549765ecfb24f0b80b2ed086fdc818bff3 > I would like to request a CVE id for the flaw in nettle. Use CVE-2016-6489 for the vulnerability that was fixed in 3fe1d6549765ecfb24f0b80b2ed086fdc818bff3. At this point, we are not assigning any CVE IDs for potential "incomplete fix" issues mentioned in the 003093.html post, such as "The CRT code used for RSA signing uses other functions which may leak, in particular division functions with branches depending on secret data ... exponents use a normalized size field (so top limb is non-zero). This might still leak information about the top exponent bits ... Mini-gmp builds don't try to be side-channel silent." - -- CVE Assignment Team M/S M300, 202 Burlington Road, Bedford, MA 01730 USA [ A PGP key is available for encrypted communications at http://cve.mitre.org/cve/request_id.html ] -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1 iQIcBAEBCAAGBQJXm4v1AAoJEHb/MwWLVhi2e1gP+wSLsNAZzwAJjOhLjYX2vzob CjfELfdo2uvAJvfydPIUD+T4j0gnHuSAPXJEtXwC9VdRPla5J202B2admS2wnKk+ AXy14vW3trEYvcs4Gp7uqMMoS6K1Qb+rnbOOTsYKcirUk8Ml6yuHS9wDugUwrlyg G9VipRYFZCSz0pqiz4Lv1mc4ViMz7uQbUZ9oPWthwr8RDhJebdXlab1Co5FwPf8s IUOrubPlH/rSGsJ/zSWE3HsP8Qcfe3Mg7Rph4mqYiv/amefRcABjyKSo2lgGUcdZ RoM148KjY+3ys5hEwgYGv4PL7lkm698/lShsgBjyTlyQYpCRHMywBzK9ZorgZA49 Mt+bghgMJEPilWxzwVsoQ53vPjs4IH4p8O1ba0NeBYfX/Crd9q25NMV7FCzzkO1R H8yRdITvBg9DmDifvWJT9mlnKmtkHEg3sPYr0QSVWI5qUKo4v1XYnNrr9K88rUUq +ai5/h13gN2hIQW6sc+S/01jO30X4rfL6+REhqz3ri8mi3LRLxj1n8ElaQEO/ulh USC88qdZpMDIwLl5e3WL11CjZ9EbtxGaFLwzScCm5cFXPPqZmVp1h7iX90380ItT rRzJ9sfCew+bWFly7l60oefy+OP8u2mIbUMK+dzzm5dkcu+n67uMWB3Rb2/64OpO WDByvQZt5Gaz6zeYp81s =Z0L4 -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
