How to fix?

Upgrade Debian:12 fort-validator to version 1.5.2-1 or higher.

NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply to the upstream fort-validator package. See How to fix? for Debian:12 relevant versions.

FORT Validator versions prior to 1.5.2 will crash if an RPKI CA publishes an X.509 EE certificate. This will lead to RTR clients such as BGP routers to lose access to the RPKI VRP data set, effectively disabling Route Origin Validation.
