Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

A stack-based buffer overflow exists in the ssl_util_uuencode_binary function in

remote attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code via a client certificate
with a long subject DN.
The provided packages are patched to prevent this problem.
