Subject: CVE request: openssl: null pointer dereference issue

Hi Kurt, Steve, vendors,

bad S/MIME messages with crafted MIME headers can result in a NULL pointer 
dereference in openssl's ans1 parser,

 https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=748738
 http://www.mail-archive.com/openssl-dev@openssl.org/msg30305.html
 http://cvs.openssl.org/chngview?cn=22144

Does it qualify for a CVE?

Thanks, Matthias
