Description

Multiple memory leaks in t1_lib.c in OpenSSL before 1.0.1u, 1.0.2 before 1.0.2i, and 1.1.0 before 1.1.0a allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via large OCSP Status Request extensions.

Solution(s)

  • http-openssl-1_0_1-upgrade-1_0_1_u
  • http-openssl-1_0_2-upgrade-1_0_2_i
  • http-openssl-1_1_0-upgrade-1_1_0_a
