 OpenSSL changes between 1.1.1o and 1.1.1p [21 Jun 2022]

  *) In addition to the c_rehash shell command injection identified in
     CVE-2022-1292, further bugs where the c_rehash script does not
     properly sanitise shell metacharacters to prevent command injection have been

     When the CVE-2022-1292 was fixed it was not discovered that there
     are other places in the script where the file names of certificates
     being hashed were possibly passed to a command executed through the shell.

     This script is distributed by some operating systems in a manner where
     it is automatically executed.  On such operating systems, an attacker
     could execute arbitrary commands with the privileges of the script.

     Use of the c_rehash script is considered obsolete and should be replaced
     by the OpenSSL rehash command line tool.

  *) When OpenSSL TLS client is connecting without any supported elliptic
     curves and TLS-1.3 protocol is disabled the connection will no longer fail
     if a ciphersuite that does not use a key exchange based on elliptic
     curves can be negotiated.
