Vulnerability in OpenSSL 1.0.x


Security expert Georgi Guninski has pointed out a security issue in the 1.0 branch of OpenSSL that potentially allows SSL servers to compromise clients. Apparently the hole can be exploited simply by sending a specially crafted certificate to the client, causing deallocated memory to be accessed in the ssl3_get_key_exchange function (in ssl\s3_clnt.c).
