Entry     2018-03-10

Simon Butcher reports:

      + When the truncated HMAC extension is enabled and CBC is used, sending a
        malicious application packet can be used to selectively corrupt 6 bytes
        on the peer's heap, potentially leading to a crash or remote code
        execution. This can be triggered remotely from either side in both TLS
        and DTLS.
      + When RSASSA-PSS signature verification is enabled, sending a
        maliciously constructed certificate chain can be used to cause a buffer
        overflow on the peer's stack, potentially leading to crash or remote
        code execution. This can be triggered remotely from either side in both
        TLS and DTLS.
