Description

Debian reports:

Hanno Boeck discovered a stack-based buffer overflow in the asn1_der_decoding function in Libtasn1, a library to manage ASN.1 structures. A remote attacker could take advantage of this flaw to cause an application using the Libtasn1 library to crash, or potentially to execute arbitrary code.
