CVE-2021-40528

CWE-327
 

 
The ElGamal implementation in Libgcrypt before 1.9.4 allows plaintext recovery because, during interaction between two cryptographic libraries, a certain dangerous combination of the prime defined by the receiver's public key, the generator defined by the receiver's public key, and the sender's ephemeral exponents can lead to a cross-configuration attack against OpenPGP.

CVE-2021-33560

CWE-203
 

 
Libgcrypt before 1.8.8 and 1.9.x before 1.9.3 mishandles ElGamal encryption because it lacks exponent blinding to address a side-channel attack against mpi_powm, and the window size is not chosen appropriately. (There is also an interoperability problem because the selection of the k integer value does not properly consider the differences between basic ElGamal encryption and generalized ElGamal encryption.) This, for example, affects use of ElGamal in OpenPGP.

CVE-2021-3345

CWE-787
 

 
_gcry_md_block_write in cipher/hash-common.c in Libgcrypt version 1.9.0 has a heap-based buffer overflow when the digest final function sets a large count value. It is recommended to upgrade to 1.9.1 or later.

CVE-2015-0837

CWE-203
 

 
The mpi_powm function in Libgcrypt before 1.6.3 and GnuPG before 1.4.19 allows attackers to obtain sensitive information by leveraging timing differences when accessing a pre-computed table during modular exponentiation, related to a "Last-Level Cache Side-Channel Attack."

 
 
CVE-2014-3591

CWE-200
 

 
Libgcrypt before 1.6.3 and GnuPG before 1.4.19 does not implement ciphertext blinding for Elgamal decryption, which allows physically proximate attackers to obtain the server's private key by determining factors using crafted ciphertext and the fluctuations in the electromagnetic field during multiplication.

CVE-2019-12904

CWE-310
 

 
In Libgcrypt 1.8.4, the C implementation of AES is vulnerable to a flush-and-reload side-channel attack because physical addresses are available to other processes. (The C implementation is used on platforms where an assembly-language implementation is unavailable.)

CVE-2017-7526

CWE-310
 

 
libgcrypt before version 1.7.8 is vulnerable to a cache side-channel attack resulting into a complete break of RSA-1024 while using the left-to-right method for computing the sliding-window expansion. The same attack is believed to work on RSA-2048 with moderately more computation. This side-channel requires that attacker can run arbitrary software on the hardware where the private RSA key is used.

CVE-2018-12438

CWE-320
 

 
The Elliptic Curve Cryptography library (aka sunec or libsunec) allows a memory-cache side-channel attack on ECDSA signatures, aka the Return Of the Hidden Number Problem or ROHNP. To discover an ECDSA key, the attacker needs access to either the local machine or a different virtual machine on the same physical host.

 
 
CVE-2018-12437

CWE-320
 

 
LibTomCrypt through 1.18.1 allows a memory-cache side-channel attack on ECDSA signatures, aka the Return Of the Hidden Number Problem or ROHNP. To discover an ECDSA key, the attacker needs access to either the local machine or a different virtual machine on the same physical host.

 
 
CVE-2018-12433

CWE-320
 

 
** DISPUTED ** cryptlib through 3.4.4 allows a memory-cache side-channel attack on DSA and ECDSA signatures, aka the Return Of the Hidden Number Problem or ROHNP. To discover a key, the attacker needs access to either the local machine or a different virtual machine on the same physical host. NOTE: the vendor does not include side-channel attacks within its threat model.
