Rating: Severe
Exposure Level Classification:
    Remote Deterministic Vulnerability
Updated Versions: 

rPath Issue Tracking System:


    Previous versions of OpenSSL do not properly check the return value from
    the EVP_VerifyFinal function, which allows remote attackers to bypass
    validation of the certificate chain via a malformed SSL/TLS signature 
    for DSA and ECDSA keys.
