 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2012:039

 Package : libtasn1
 Date    : March 27, 2012
 Affected: 2010.1, 2011., Enterprise Server 5.0

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been found and corrected in libtasn1:
 The asn1_get_length_der function in decoding.c in GNU Libtasn1 before
 2.12, as used in GnuTLS before 3.0.16 and other products, does not
 properly handle certain large length values, which allows remote
 attackers to cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption and
 application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a
 crafted ASN.1 structure (CVE-2012-1569).
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
