CVE-2017-10790
      The _asn1_check_identifier function in GNU Libtasn1 through 4.12
      causes a NULL pointer dereference and crash when reading crafted
      input that triggers assignment of a NULL value within an asn1_node
      structure. It may lead to a remote denial of service attack.


For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version
2.13-2+deb7u5.

We recommend that you upgrade your libtasn1-3 packages.
