Description

pkcs15-tool in OpenSC before 0.11.6 does not apply security updates to a smart card unless the card's label matches the "OpenSC" string, which might allow physically proximate attackers to exploit vulnerabilities that the card owner expected were patched, as demonstrated by exploitation of CVE-2008-2235.
