Jaak Ristioja discovered a double-free vulnerability in GnuTLS, a library implementing the TLS and SSL protocols, during verification of pkcs7 signatures. A remote attacker can take advantage of this flaw to cause an application using the GnuTLS library to crash (denial of service), or potentially, to execute arbitrary code.
