Exclamation OpenSSL TLS Server Extension Parsing Race Condition Vulnerability


Quote:
A vulnerability has been reported in OpenSSL, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) and potentially compromise an application using the library.

The vulnerability is caused due to a race condition within the TLS extension parsing code, which can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow.
