   SUSE Security Update: Security update for python-cryptography

Announcement ID:    SUSE-SU-2018:3392-1
Rating:             moderate
References:         #1101820 
Cross-References:   CVE-2018-10903
Affected Products:
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Basesystem 15

   An update that fixes one vulnerability is now available.


   This update for python-cryptography fixes the following issues:

   - CVE-2018-10903: The finalize_with_tag API did not enforce a minimum tag
     length. If a user did not validate the input length prior to passing it
     to finalize_with_tag an attacker could craft an invalid payload with a
     shortened tag (e.g. 1 byte) such that they would have a 1 in 256 chance
     of passing the MAC check. GCM tag forgeries could have caused key
     leakage (bsc#1101820).
