Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2017-05-31 14:31:08 UTC

It was found that RSA public keys passed to the gmp plugin aren't validated sufficiently before attempting signature verification, so that invalid input might lead to a floating point exception and 
crash of the process. A certificate with an appropriately prepared public key sent by a peer could be used for a denial-of-service attack.

External References:


It was found that ASN.1 CHOICE types are not correctly handled by the ASN.1 parser when parsing X.509 certificates with extensions that use such types. This could lead to infinite looping of the thread 
parsing a specifically crafted certificate.

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
Comment 1 Bjarke Istrup Pedersen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2017-06-02 12:24:54 UTC
5.5.2 has been added to the tree, and 5.5.1 has been removed.
Please stabilize, so we can remove the last old version.
Comment 2 Andreas Steinmetz 2017-06-02 15:00:43 UTC
Please note that according to:
5.5.2 is still a vulnerable version, 5.5.3 is actually required.
Comment 3 Bjarke Istrup Pedersen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2017-06-02 15:38:26 UTC
Indeed - I have changed it to 5.5.3 instead :)
