Date : 2016-09-28
CVE-ID : CVE-2016-7052
Package : openssl
Type : denial of service
Remote : Yes
Link : https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/CVE
The package openssl before version 1.0.2.j-1 is vulnerable to denial of
Upgrade to 1.0.2.j-1.
# pacman -Syu "openssl>=1.0.2.j-1"
The problem has been fixed upstream in version 1.0.2.j.
A bug fix which included a CRL sanity check was added to OpenSSL 1.1.0
but was omitted from OpenSSL 1.0.2i. As a result any attempt to use
CRLs in OpenSSL 1.0.2i will crash with a null pointer exception.
The issue was reported to OpenSSL on 22nd September 2016 by Bruce
Stephens and Thomas Jakobi.
A remote attacker is able to perform a denial of service attack by
using a certificate revocation list.
