Description

The Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) implementation in crypto/cms/cms_asn1.c in OpenSSL before 0.9.8o and 1.x before 1.0.0a does not properly handle structures that contain OriginatorInfo, which allows context-dependent attackers to modify invalid memory locations or conduct double-free attacks, and possibly execute arbitrary code, via unspecified vectors.

Solution(s)

  • http-openssl-0_9_8-upgrade-0_9_8_o
  • http-openssl-1_0_0-upgrade-1_0_0_a
