The asn1_length function in strongSwan 2.8 before 2.8.11, 4.2 before
4.2.17, and 4.3 before 4.3.3 does not properly handle X.509
certificates with crafted Relative Distinguished Names (RDNs), which
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (pluto IKE daemon
crash) via malformed ASN.1 data. NOTE: this is due to an incomplete
fix for CVE-2009-2185.
Note:References are provided for the convenience of the reader to help distinguish between vulnerabilities. The list is not intended to be complete.
