OpenSSL policy checks denial of service
|openssl-policy-checks-dos (72129)||Medium Risk|
OpenSSL is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a double-free error within the policy checks. If X509_V_FLAG_POLICY_CHECK is set, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service.
Denial of Service
