DoS (Denial of Service)
This includes vulnerabilities ranging from excessive resource consumption (e.g. causing a system to use a lot of memory) to crashing an application or an entire system.
This covers vulnerabilities where malicious people are able to gain system access and execute arbitrary code with the privileges of a local user.
Debian has issued an update for libtasn1-3. This fixes a vulnerability, which can be exploited by malicious people to potentially compromise an application using the library.
