CVE-ID: CVE-2021-43527

CWE-ID: CWE-122 - Heap-based Buffer Overflow

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the target system.

The vulnerability exists due to a boundary error when handling DER-encoded DSA or RSA-PSS signatures. A remote attacker can send specially crafted signatures encoded within CMS, S/MIME, PKCS #7, or PKCS #12 to the application, trigger heap-based buffer overflow and execute arbitrary code on the target system.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may result in complete compromise of vulnerable system.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.
