Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 829317
reading pin from file can make all TLS connections hang
Last modified: 2013-03-03 20:30:53 EST
Description of problem:
The buffer allocated for reading password (pin) file has to be initialized with
zeros, or we need to append zero at the end of the file. Otherwise we might read
initialized memory and consider it to be a password. In this situation, all
incoming TLS connections can hang.
Patch submitted upstream:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Not always, depends on what malloc() gives us when allocating the buffer for the password.
