Doc Text:
An integer overflow vulnerability was found in the Go crypto/x509 and golang.org/x/crypto/cryptobyte libraries on 32-bit architectures. A remote attacker could exploit this by supplying a crafted x.509 certificate, or other ASN.1 structure, as either a client or server to crash vulnerable Go applications.

Description Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2020-02-27 16:52:00 UTC
On 32-bit architectures, a malformed input to crypto/x509 or the ASN.1 parsing functions of golang.org/x/crypto/cryptobyte can lead to a panic.

The malformed certificate can be delivered via a crypto/tls connection to a client, or to a server that accepts client certificates. net/http clients can be made to crash by an HTTPS server, while net/http servers that accept client certificates will recover the panic and are unaffected.

Created golang tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: epel-all [bug 1808042]
Affects: fedora-all [bug 1808044]

Comment 2 Mark Cooper 2020-03-02 02:28:50 UTC
The current version of ServiceMesh only supports x86_64 architectures and hence is not affected by this flaw.


Comment 10 Stoyan Nikolov 2020-03-06 06:58:48 UTC

Below products are only supported on 64bit architectures and are therefore not affected by this flaw:

* OpenShift Container Platform
* OpenShift Service Mesh 
* Red Hat Ceph Storage
* Red Hat Gluster Storage
* Container-native Virtualization
