Fedora Update Notification
2017-06-09 18:48:36.546397

Name : mingw-libtasn1
Product : Fedora 26
Version : 4.12
Release : 1.fc26
URL : http://www.gnu.org/software/libtasn1/
Summary : MinGW Windows libtasn1 library
Description :
libtasn1 is the ASN.1 library used in GNUTLS.

This package contains the MinGW Windows cross compiled libtasn1 library.

Update Information:

Noteworthy changes in release 4.11 (released 2017-05-27) [stable] - Introduced
the ASN1_TIME_ENCODING_ERROR error code to indicate an invalid encoding in
DER time fields. - Introduced flag ASN1_DECODE_FLAG_ALLOW_INCORRECT_TIME. This
flag allows decoding errors in time fields even when in strict DER mode.
That is introduced in order to allow toleration of invalid times in X.509
certificates (which are common) even though strict DER adherence is enforced
in other fields. - Added safety check in asn1_find_node(). That prevents a
when a very long variable name is provided by the developer. Note that this
be exploited requires controlling the ASN.1 definitions used by the
i.e., the 'name' parameter of asn1_write_value() or
asn1_read_value(). The
library is not designed to protect against malicious manipulation of the
developer assigned variable names. Reported by Jakub Jirasek. Noteworthy
changes in release 4.10 (released 2017-01-16) [stable] - Updated gnulib -
Removed -Werror from default compiler flags - Fixed undefined behavior when
negating integers in _asn1_ltostr(). Issue found by oss-fuzz project (via
gnutls): https://bugs.chromium.org/p/oss-fuzz/issues/detail?id=388 - Pass the
correct length to _asn1_get_indefinite_length_string in asn1_get_length_ber.
This addresses reading 1-byte past the end of data. Issue found by oss-fuzz
