Description of the vulnerability

The OpenSSL product implements a SSL/TLS/DTLS client/server.

When the server receives a session ticket, it checks its integrity. However, if this ticket is invalid, the memory allocated for its processing is never freed.

An attacker can therefore use a malicious Session Ticket, to create a memory leak in OpenSSL, in order to trigger a denial of service.
