Hi all,

I'm facing an endless loop trying to load the CRL at this address:

I've saved the CRL file, you can download from the following link, if you want to test it:

If you open it with cryptext.dll you can see correctly the contained data, but TElCertificateRevocationList.LoadFromStream never terminates parsing data.

I'm still using version 7.2. Has this been solved in subsequent releases or can you send me a workaround/change instructions to correct it in my current version?

Thank you and Best regards.

Paolo Righi.

Thank you for contacting us.

As we don't fix errors in old versions, you should better download the latest build from our site and check it: https://www.eldos.com/sbb/download-release.php#product. If it works then you should upgrade in order to solve the problem.

I'm sorry, I should correct my post. Actually the LoadFromStream function returns an SB_CRL_ERROR_INVALID_FORMAT code.
I confused the behaviour of a utility "ASN.1 Editor" which really enters an endless loop.

I've just checked that your CRL load successfully with the latest SecureBlackbox verson.
