PolarSSL Security Advisory 2014-02

Title	 Denial of Service against GCM enabled servers (and clients)
CVE	 CVE-2014-4911
Date	 11th of July 2014
Affects	 All PolarSSL versions before 1.2.11 and 1.3.8
Not affected All branches before 1.2.x and version > 1.2.10 or > 1.3.7
Impact	     Crash of server application (or clients by a malicious server)
Exploit	     Withheld
A denial of service against PolarSSL servers that offer GCM ciphersuites has been found using the fuzzing techniques of the Codenomicon Defensics toolkit. Potentially clients are affected too if a malicious server decides to execute the denial of service attack against its clients.

Impact
A server or client that is targeted with this attack can be potentially crashed with a segfault.

Workaround
Disabling of the GCM ciphersuites prevents this attack.

Patch
