A memory leak flaw was found in the way the dtls1_buffer_record() function of OpenSSL parsed certain DTLS messages. A remote attacker could send multiple specially crafted DTLS messages to exhaust all available memory of a DTLS server.

Description Vasyl Kaigorodov 2015-01-08 16:48:48 UTC
OpenSSL released security advisory [1] which fixes the below issue:

A memory leak can occur in the dtls1_buffer_record function under certain
conditions. In particular this could occur if an attacker sent repeated DTLS
records with the same sequence number but for the next epoch. The memory leak
could be exploited by an attacker in a Denial of Service attack through memory
exhaustion.
