Synopsis
========

A vulnerability in Libtasn1 allows remote attackers to cause a Denial
of Service condition.

Background
==========

A library that provides Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1, as
specified by the X.680 ITU-T recommendation) parsing and structures
management, and Distinguished Encoding Rules (DER, as per X.690)
encoding and decoding functions.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 dev-libs/libtasn1 < 4.8 >= 4.8

Description
===========

Libtasn1 does not correctly handle certain malformed DER certificates.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system to process a
specially crafted certificate using Libtasn1, resulting in a Denial of
Service condition.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Libtasn1 users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/libtasn1-4.8"
