Intel ID INTEL-SA-00067
Product family Multiple Intel Software Products
Impact of vulnerability Elevation of Privilege
Severity rating Moderate
Original release Dec 12, 2016

Summary: 

Many Intel(R) SW products use OpenSSL during install procedure. In certain conditions explicitly during product activation, an attacker potentially can execute arbitrary code on client system.

Description: 

The ASN.1 implementation in OpenSSL before 1.0.1o and 1.0.2 before 1.0.2c allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (buffer underflow and memory corruption) via an ANY field in crafted serialized data, aka the "negative zero" issue.
