Amazon Linux AMI Security Advisory: ALAS-2014-359
Advisory Release Date: 2014-09-19 10:24 Pacific
Severity: Medium

Issue Overview:

It was discovered that the asn1_get_bit_der() function of the libtasn1 library incorrectly reported the length of ASN.1-encoded data. Specially crafted ASN.1 input could cause an application using libtasn1 to perform an out-of-bounds access operation, causing the application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-3468 )

Multiple incorrect buffer boundary check issues were discovered in libtasn1. Specially crafted ASN.1 input could cause an application using libtasn1 to crash. (CVE-2014-3467 )

Multiple NULL pointer dereference flaws were found in libtasn1's asn1_read_value() function. Specially crafted ASN.1 input could cause an application using libtasn1 to crash, if the application used the aforementioned function in a certain way. (CVE-2014-3469 )
