HighCVE-2022-22743.0.4AES OCB mode for 32-bit x86 platforms using the AES-NI assembly optimised implementation will not encrypt the entirety of the data under some circumstances.
The OpenSSL 3.0.4 release introduced a serious bug in the RSA implementation for X86_64 CPUs supporting the AVX512IFMA instructions.

The vulnerabilities are fixed in the latest version, 3.0.5 or 1.1.1q depending on which version of OpenSSL you are currently using.
