Description

The BN_bn2dec function in crypto/bn/bn_print.c in OpenSSL before 1.1.0 does not properly validate division results, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors.

Solution(s)

  • http-openssl-1_0_1-upgrade-1_0_1_u
  • http-openssl-1_0_2-upgrade-1_0_2_i
