Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2012-2131

Tomas Hoger, Red Hat, discovered that the fix for CVE-2012-2110 for
the 0.9.8 series of OpenSSL was incomplete. It has been assigned the
CVE-2012-2131 identifier.

For reference, the original description of CVE-2012-2110 from DSA-2454-1
is quoted below:


        Tavis Ormandy, Google Security Team, discovered a vulnerability
        in the way DER-encoded ASN.1 data is parsed that can result in
        a heap overflow.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.8o-4squeeze12.

The testing distribution (wheezy), and the unstable distribution (sid),
are not affected by this issue.

We recommend that you upgrade your openssl packages.
