Description Andrew Griffiths 2014-08-06 21:14:41 EDT
It was found that OBJ_obj2txt may cause pretty printing functions such as X509_name_oneline, X509_name_print_ex, and others, to leak information from the stack. If applications echo pretty printing output, then a remote attacker could exploit this flaw to read information from the stack. OpenSSL clients and servers are not affected by this flaw; only applications that echo pretty printing output are affected.
