Amazon Linux AMI Security Advisory: ALAS-2012-72
Advisory Release Date: 2014-09-14 15:52 Pacific
Severity: Important

Issue Overview:

Multiple numeric conversion errors, leading to a buffer overflow, were found in the way OpenSSL parsed ASN.1 (Abstract Syntax Notation One) data from BIO (OpenSSL's I/O abstraction) inputs. Specially-crafted DER (Distinguished Encoding Rules) encoded data read from a file or other BIO input could cause an application using the OpenSSL library to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2012-2110 )
