A vulnerability in RSA BSAFE Micro Edition Suite and Crypto-C Micro Edition could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service (DoS) condition on a targeted system.
The vulnerability is due to uncontrolled resource consumption by the affected software when parsing ASN.1 data. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending crafted ASN.1 data to a targeted system. A successful exploit could exhaust memory resources, resulting in a DoS condition.
RSA has confirmed the vulnerability and released software updates.
