The x509parse_crt function in x509.h in PolarSSL 1.1.x before 1.1.7
and 1.2.x before 1.2.8 does not properly parse certificate messages
during the SSL/TLS handshake, which allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (infinite loop and CPU consumption) via a
certificate message that contains a PEM encoded certificate.
