CVE-2023-6246

Status Candidate

Overview

A heap-based buffer overflow was found in the __vsyslog_internal function of the glibc library. This function is called by the syslog and vsyslog functions. This issue occurs when the openlog function was not called, or called with the ident argument set to NULL, and the program name (the basename of argv[0]) is bigger than 1024 bytes, resulting in an application crash or local privilege escalation. This issue affects glibc 2.36 and newer.

glibc syslog() Heap-Based Buffer Overflow
Posted Jan 31, 2024
Authored by Qualys Security Advisory

Qualys discovered a heap-based buffer overflow in the GNU C Library's __vsyslog_internal() function, which is called by both syslog() and vsyslog(). This vulnerability was introduced in glibc 2.37 (in August 2022).

undefinedglibc qsort() Out-Of-Bounds Read / Writeundefined
Posted Jan 31, 2024
Authored by Qualys Security Advisory

Qualys discovered a memory corruption in the glibc's qsort() function, due to a missing bounds check. To be vulnerable, a program must call qsort() with a nontransitive comparison function (a function cmp(int a, int b) that returns (a - b), for example) and with a large number of attacker-controlled elements (to cause a malloc() failure inside qsort()). They have not tried to find such a vulnerable program in the real world. All glibc versions from at least September 1992 (glibc 1.04) to the current release (glibc 2.38) are affected, but the glibc's developers have independently discovered and patched this memory corruption in the master branch.

Debian Linux Security Advisory 5611-1 - The Qualys Research Labs discovered several vulnerabilities in the GNU C Library's __vsyslog_internal() function (called by syslog() and vsyslog()). A heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2023-6246), an off-by-one heap overflow (CVE-2023-6779) and an integer overflow (CVE-2023-6780) can be exploited for privilege escalation or denial of service.
