OpenSSL GOST ENGINE denial of service
|openssl-gost-engine-dos (72133)||Medium Risk|
OpenSSL is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by an error in the GOST ENGINE when processing invalid GOST parameters. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause the server to crash.
Denial of Service
Upgrade to the latest version of OpenSSL (0.9.8s or 1.0.0f or later), available from the OpenSSL Web site. See References.
