Bug Description

The asn1_ber_decoder function in lib/asn1_decoder.c in the Linux kernel before 4.3 allows attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) via an ASN.1 BER file that lacks a public key, leading to mishandling by the public_key_verify_signature function in crypto/asymmetric_keys/public_key.c.

Break-Fix: 3d167d68e3805ee45ed2e8412fc03ed919c54c24 0d62e9dd6da45bbf0f33a8617afc5fe774c8f45f
