CVE ID: CVE-2012-2190

DESCRIPTION:
GSKit allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) via a crafted ClientHello message in the TLS Handshake Protocol.

CVSS:
CVSS Base Score: 5
CVSS Temporal Score: See http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/75994 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)


CVE ID: CVE-2012-2191

DESCRIPTION:
GSKit does not properly validate data during execution of a protection mechanism against the Vaudenay SSL CBC timing attack, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via crafted values in the TLS Record Layer.

CVSS:
CVSS Base Score: 5
CVSS Temporal Score: See http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/75996 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)


CVE ID: CVE-2012-2203

DESCRIPTION:
GSKit uses the PKCS #12 file format for certificate objects without enforcing file integrity, which makes it easier for remote attackers to spoof SSL servers via vectors involving insertion of an arbitrary root Certification Authority (CA) certificate.

CVSS:
CVSS Base Score; 5.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/77280 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:N)
