Description

OpenSSL 0.9.7 before 0.9.7l and 0.9.8 before 0.9.8d allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop and memory consumption) via malformed ASN.1 structures that trigger an improperly handled error condition.

Solution(s)

  • http-openssl-0_9_7-upgrade-0_9_7_l
  • http-openssl-0_9_8-upgrade-0_9_8_d
