There exist multiple vulnerabilities in all the implementations of the Secure Sockets Layer SSL and Transport Layer Security TLS . Vulnerabilities arise in the way OpenSSL processes a data format called Abstract Syntax Notation One ASN.1 -- an internationally recognized standard for coding and transmitting complex data structures, and a building block of the digital certificates that make SSL work.
The impacts of these vulnerabilities vary. In almost all, a remote attacker could cause a denial of service. The vulnerability mentioned in point no. 1, may result in a remote attacker being able to execute arbitrary code.
