Description of the vulnerability

The OpenSSL version 1.0.2i product fixed a bug in CRL management.

However, this fix does not check if a pointer is NULL, before using it.

An attacker can therefore force a NULL pointer to be dereferenced via a CRL on an application linked to OpenSSL 1.0.2i, in order to trigger a denial of service.
