Description

A vulnerability was discovered in PolarSSL, a lightweight crypto and SSL/TLS library. A remote attacker could exploit this flaw using specially crafted certificates to mount a denial of service against an application linked against the library (application crash), or potentially, to execute arbitrary code.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
