|Description||Das U-Boot is a device bootloader that can read its configuration from an AES encrypted file. For devices utilizing this environment encryption mode, U-Boot's use of a zero initialization vector may allow attacks against the underlying cryptographic implementation and allow an attacker to decrypt the data. Das U-Boot's AES-CBC encryption feature uses a zero (0) initialization vector. This allows an attacker to perform dictionary attacks on encrypted data produced by Das U-Boot to learn information about the encrypted data.|

[wheezy] - u-boot <not-affected> (Vulnerable code do not exist)
jessie+ no built targets use ENV_AES by default, but fw_printenv/fw_setenv
in u-boot-tools supports it. Upstream has deprecated it and plans to remove
it in future versions.
Negligible security impact
