CVE-2009-4881 1 Gnu 1 Glibc 2017-08-17 5.0 MEDIUM N/A
Integer overflow in the __vstrfmon_l function in stdlib/strfmon_l.c in the strfmon implementation in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) before 2.10.1 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted format string, as demonstrated by the %99999999999999999999n string, a related issue to CVE-2008-1391.
CVE-2009-4880 1 Gnu 1 Glibc 2017-08-17 5.0 MEDIUM N/A
Multiple integer overflows in the strfmon implementation in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.10.1 and earlier allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption or application crash) via a crafted format string, as demonstrated by a crafted first argument to the money_format function in PHP, a related issue to CVE-2008-1391.
CVE-2015-5277 3 Canonical, Gnu, Redhat 6 Ubuntu Linux, Glibc, Enterprise Linux Desktop and 3 more 2017-07-01 7.2 HIGH N/A
The get_contents function in nss_files/files-XXX.c in the Name Service Switch (NSS) in GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) before 2.20 might allow local users to cause a denial of service (heap corruption) or gain privileges via a long line in the NSS files database.
CVE-2012-3480 1 Gnu 1 Glibc 2017-07-01 4.6 MEDIUM N/A
Multiple integer overflows in the (1) strtod, (2) strtof, (3) strtold, (4) strtod_l, and other unspecified "related functions" in stdlib in GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.16 allow local users to cause a denial of service (application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a long string, which triggers a stack-based buffer overflow.
CVE-2012-4424 1 Gnu 1 Glibc 2017-07-01 5.1 MEDIUM N/A
Stack-based buffer overflow in string/strcoll_l.c in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.17 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a long string that triggers a malloc failure and use of the alloca function.
CVE-2012-6656 3 Canonical, Debian, Gnu 3 Ubuntu Linux, Debian Linux, Glibc 2017-07-01 5.0 MEDIUM N/A
iconvdata/ibm930.c in GNU C Library (aka glibc) before 2.16 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) via a multibyte character value of "0xffff" to the iconv function when converting IBM930 encoded data to UTF-8.
CVE-2013-2207 2 Fedoraproject, Gnu 2 Fedora, Glibc 2017-07-01 2.6 LOW N/A
pt_chown in GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) before 2.18 does not properly check permissions for tty files, which allows local users to change the permission on the files and obtain access to arbitrary pseudo-terminals by leveraging a FUSE file system.
CVE-2013-4237 1 Gnu 1 Glibc 2017-07-01 6.8 MEDIUM N/A
sysdeps/posix/readdir_r.c in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.18 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write and crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted (1) NTFS or (2) CIFS image.
CVE-2013-4332 2 Gnu, Redhat 2 Glibc, Enterprise Linux 2017-07-01 4.3 MEDIUM N/A
Multiple integer overflows in malloc/malloc.c in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.18 and earlier allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (heap corruption) via a large value to the (1) pvalloc, (2) valloc, (3) posix_memalign, (4) memalign, or (5) aligned_alloc functions.
CVE-2013-4458 2 Gnu, Suse 3 Glibc, Linux Enterprise Debuginfo, Linux Enterprise Server 2017-07-01 5.0 MEDIUM N/A
Stack-based buffer overflow in the getaddrinfo function in sysdeps/posix/getaddrinfo.c in GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.18 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a (1) hostname or (2) IP address that triggers a large number of AF_INET6 address results. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2013-1914.
CVE-2013-4788 1 Gnu 2 Eglibc, Glibc 2017-07-01 5.1 MEDIUM N/A
The PTR_MANGLE implementation in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.4, 2.17, and earlier, and Embedded GLIBC (EGLIBC) does not initialize the random value for the pointer guard, which makes it easier for context-dependent attackers to control execution flow by leveraging a buffer-overflow vulnerability in an application and using the known zero value pointer guard to calculate a pointer address.
CVE-2015-8983 1 Gnu 1 Glibc 2017-03-22 6.8 MEDIUM 8.1 HIGH
Integer overflow in the _IO_wstr_overflow function in libio/wstrops.c in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) before 2.22 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors related to computing a size in bytes, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow.
CVE-2015-8984 1 Gnu 1 Glibc 2017-03-22 4.3 MEDIUM 5.9 MEDIUM
The fnmatch function in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) before 2.22 might allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a malformed pattern, which triggers an out-of-bounds read.
CVE-2016-5417 1 Gnu 1 Glibc 2017-02-17 5.0 MEDIUM 7.5 HIGH
Memory leak in the __res_vinit function in the IPv6 name server management code in libresolv in GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) before 2.24 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by leveraging partial initialization of internal resolver data structures.
CVE-2014-6040 1 Gnu 1 Glibc 2017-01-03 5.0 MEDIUM N/A
GNU C Library (aka glibc) before 2.20 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and crash) via a multibyte character value of "0xffff" to the iconv function when converting (1) IBM933, (2) IBM935, (3) IBM937, (4) IBM939, or (5) IBM1364 encoded data to UTF-8.
CVE-2013-4122 2 Cmu, Gnu 2 Cyrus-sasl, Glibc 2016-12-08 4.3 MEDIUM N/A
Cyrus SASL 2.1.23, 2.1.26, and earlier does not properly handle when a NULL value is returned upon an error by the crypt function as implemented in glibc 2.17 and later, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (thread crash and consumption) via (1) an invalid salt or, when FIPS-140 is enabled, a (2) DES or (3) MD5 encrypted password, which triggers a NULL pointer dereference.
CVE-2011-1089 1 Gnu 1 Glibc 2016-12-07 3.3 LOW N/A
The addmntent function in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.13 and earlier does not report an error status for failed attempts to write to the /etc/mtab file, which makes it easier for local users to trigger corruption of this file, as demonstrated by writes from a process with a small RLIMIT_FSIZE value, a different vulnerability than CVE-2010-0296.
CVE-2010-0015 1 Gnu 1 Glibc 2016-12-07 7.5 HIGH N/A
nis/nss_nis/nis-pwd.c in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.7 and Embedded GLIBC (EGLIBC) 2.10.2 adds information from the passwd.adjunct.byname map to entries in the passwd map, which allows remote attackers to obtain the encrypted passwords of NIS accounts by calling the getpwnam function.
CVE-2016-2856 3 Canonical, Debian, Gnu 3 Ubuntu Linux, Debian Linux, Glibc 2016-11-28 7.2 HIGH 8.4 HIGH
pt_chown in the glibc package before 2.19-18+deb8u4 on Debian jessie; the elibc package before 2.15-0ubuntu10.14 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and before 2.19-0ubuntu6.8 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS; and the glibc package before 2.21-0ubuntu4.2 on Ubuntu 15.10 and before 2.23-0ubuntu1 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and 16.10 lacks a namespace check associated with file-descriptor passing, which allows local users to capture keystrokes and spoof data, and possibly gain privileges, via pts read and write operations, related to debian/sysdeps/linux.mk. NOTE: this is not considered a vulnerability in the upstream GNU C Library because the upstream documentation has a clear security recommendation against the --enable-pt_chown option.
CVE-2015-1473 2 Canonical, Gnu 2 Ubuntu Linux, Glibc 2016-11-28 6.4 MEDIUM N/A
The ADDW macro in stdio-common/vfscanf.c in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) before 2.21 does not properly consider data-type size during a risk-management decision for use of the alloca function, which might allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (segmentation violation) or overwrite memory locations beyond the stack boundary via a long line containing wide characters that are improperly handled in a wscanf call.
