Impact:   Denial of service via local system
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 1.0.2h and prior versions
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in OpenSSL. A local user can cause denial of service conditions on the target application.

A local user can supply a specially crafted timestamp file that, when processed by the target application using the OpenSSL library, will trigger an out-of-bounds memory read error in TS_OBJ_print_bio() in 'crypto/ts/ts_lib.c' and cause the target application to crash.
