Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-0427-01 - libtasn1 is a library developed for ASN.1 structures management that includes DER encoding and decoding. A flaw was found in the way libtasn1 decoded DER data. An attacker could create carefully-crafted DER encoded input that, when parsed by an application that uses libtasn1, could cause the application to crash.

3. Description:

libtasn1 is a library developed for ASN.1 (Abstract Syntax Notation One)
structures management that includes DER (Distinguished Encoding Rules)
encoding and decoding.

A flaw was found in the way libtasn1 decoded DER data. An attacker could
create carefully-crafted DER encoded input (such as an X.509 certificate)
that, when parsed by an application that uses libtasn1 (such as
applications using GnuTLS), could cause the application to crash.
(CVE-2012-1569)

Red Hat would like to thank Matthew Hall of Mu Dynamics for reporting this
issue.

Users of libtasn1 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue. For the update to take
effect, all applications linked to the libtasn1 library must be restarted,
or the system rebooted.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/articles/11258

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

804920 - CVE-2012-1569 libtasn1: DER decoding buffer overflow (GNUTLS-SA-2012-3, MU-201202-02)
