OpenSSL Information leak in pretty printing functions (CVE-2014-3508)

Severity CVSS Published Added Modified
4 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N) August 08, 2014 August 08, 2014 January 09, 2017

Description

The OBJ_obj2txt function in crypto/objects/obj_dat.c in OpenSSL 0.9.8 before 0.9.8zb, 1.0.0 before 1.0.0n, and 1.0.1 before 1.0.1i, when pretty printing is used, does not ensure the presence of '\0' characters, which allows context-dependent attackers to obtain sensitive information from process stack memory by reading output from X509_name_oneline, X509_name_print_ex, and unspecified other functions.
