Subject: CVE request for math/big.Exp

OSS-Security,

The Go open source project has received notification of an error in the
math/big library (https://golang.org/pkg/math/big/). The problem that was
identified is similar to CVE-2015-3193
<https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2015-3193>. The
vulnerability was introduced in the 1.5 release, and remains present in Go
1.5.1 and 1.5.2.

A fix for the issue has been applied to the master branch of the Go repo
under CL 17672 <https://go-review.googlesource.com/#/c/17672/>. We will
also be releasing Go 1.5.3 to fix this vulnerability.

We are requesting a CVE ID in order to coordinate updates with
distributions that include binary packages for the Go programming language.
We will also announce and request that all Go programs using the math/big
package that were compiled with version 1.5, 1.5.1, or 1.5.2 be recompiled
with  1.5.3 (when released) due to the static linking nature of the Go
toolchain.

Regards, jason
