Description Sam Fowler 2018-09-12 05:28:38 UTC
Several buffer overflows when handling responses from a Gemsafe V1 Smartcard in gemsafe_get_cert_len in libopensc/pkcs15-gemsafeV1.c in OpenSC before 0.19.0-rc1 could be used by attackers able to supply crafted smartcards to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact.
