New versions of tor were released (, and
fixing denial of service vulnerabilities, the changelog for
lists the ones below. Could you assign CVE identifiers for those? (I
guess the first and second might deserve one? Not sure about the third
and last item):

    Changes in version - 2015-04-06
      Tor fixes two security issues that could be used by an
      attacker to crash hidden services, or crash clients visiting hidden
      services. Hidden services should upgrade as soon as possible; clients
      should upgrade whenever packages become available.

      This release also contains two simple improvements to make hidden
      services a bit less vulnerable to denial-of-service attacks.

      o Major bugfixes (security, hidden service):
        - Fix an issue that would allow a malicious client to trigger an
          assertion failure and halt a hidden service. Fixes bug 15600;
          bugfix on Reported by "disgleirio".


        - Fix a bug that could cause a client to crash with an assertion
          failure when parsing a malformed hidden service descriptor. Fixes
          bug 15601; bugfix on Found by "DonnchaC".


      o Minor features (DoS-resistance, hidden service):
        - Introduction points no longer allow multiple INTRODUCE1 cells to
          arrive on the same circuit. This should make it more expensive for
          attackers to overwhelm hidden services with introductions.
          Resolves ticket 15515.


        - Decrease the amount of reattempts that a hidden service performs
          when its rendezvous circuits fail. This reduces the computational
          cost for running a hidden service under heavy load. Resolves
          ticket 11447.
