Description Marc Stern 2005-05-26 09:21:03 UTC
I found a buffer overrun in ssl_callback_SSLVerify_CRL( ) - ssl_engine_kernel.c:
char buff[512]; /* should be plenty */
n = BIO_read(bio, buff, sizeof(buff));
buff[n] = '\0';
If there are more than 512 bytes, n=512, thus we write in buff[512].
We should use
    n = BIO_read(bio, buff, sizeof(buff) - 1);

This could lead to a system crash.

Thanks, Mark.  Committed to the trunk and proposed for backport.

Please note that bugs which you think may have security implications should be
