Description Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-06-24 00:01:47 UTC

- Applying their fuzzing tool, the Orange Labs vulnerability research team
  found another two DoS vulnerabilities, one in the rather old ASN.1 parser
  of Relative Distinguished Names (RDNs) and a second one in the conversion
  of ASN.1 UTCTIME and GENERALIZEDTIME strings to a time_t value.
  Malformed X.509 certificate RDNs or timestamps can cause the pluto IKE
  daemon to crash and restart.
