The do_change_cipher_spec function in OpenSSL allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a crafted SSL/TLS handshake that triggers a null dereference. CVE-2004-0079 2. The SSL/TLS handshaking, when using Kerberos ciphersuites, does not properly check the length of Kerberos tickets during a handshake, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a crafted SSL/TLS handshake that causes an out-of-bounds read. CVE-2004-0112.
