Runaway memset in certificate parsing on 64-bit computers leading to a crash by attempting to write 4Gb of nulls.
Certificate validation with the verifylog mode did not return validation errors, but instead expected applications to determine the status by looking at the log.
Ticket handling protection mechanisms bypass due to the lack of restriction of public values in Diffie-Hellman key exchanges.
Incorrect IDNA domain name matching for wildcard certificates could allow specially crafted invalid certificates to be considered as valid.
