Severity CVSS Published Added Modified
10 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C) March 02, 2016 October 29, 2017 January 07, 2018

Description

The fmtstr function in crypto/bio/b_print.c in OpenSSL 1.0.1 before 1.0.1s and 1.0.2 before 1.0.2g improperly calculates string lengths, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (overflow and out-of-bounds read) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a long string, as demonstrated by a large amount of ASN.1 data, a different vulnerability than CVE-2016-2842.
