Description

The ASN.1 implementation in OpenSSL before 1.0.1o and 1.0.2 before 1.0.2c allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (buffer underflow and memory corruption) via an ANY field in crafted serialized data, aka the "negative zero" issue.

Solution(s)

  • http-openssl-1_0_1-upgrade-1_0_1_o
  • http-openssl-1_0_2-upgrade-1_0_2_c
