    Synopsis
    ========
    
    Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in GNU Libtasn1, the
    worse of which can allow a context-dependent attacker to cause a Denial
    of Service condition.
    
    Background
    ==========
    
    The ASN.1 library used in GNUTLS.
    
    Affected packages
    =================

    Description
    ===========
    
    Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in GNU Libtasn1. Please
    review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
    
    Impact
    ======
    
    A context-dependent attacker could possibly cause a Denial of Service
    condition.
    
    Workaround
    ==========
    
    There is no known workaround at this time.
    
    Resolution
    ==========
    
    All GNU Libtasn1 users should upgrade to the latest version:
