CVE-2009-0789

Priority
Medium
Description
OpenSSL before 0.9.8k on WIN64 and certain other platforms does not
properly handle a malformed ASN.1 structure, which allows remote attackers
to cause a denial of service (invalid memory access and application crash)
by placing this structure in the public key of a certificate, as
demonstrated by an RSA public key.
