Libmimedir VCF Memory Corruption Proof Of Concept

Libmimedir VCF Memory Corruption Proof Of Concept
Posted Jun 11, 2015
Authored by Jeremy Brown

Libmimedir suffers from a memory corruption vulnerability. Adding two NULL bytes to the end of a VCF file allows a user to manipulate free() calls which occur during it's lexer's memory clean-up procedure. This could lead to exploitable conditions such as crafting a specific memory chunk to allow for arbitrary code execution.

# libmimedir-0.5.1.tar.gz
# libmimedir-static 0.4-13.fc21
#
# -Notes-
#
# Reported to Red Hat Bugzilla in May (1222251) and remains unfixed as of now. There's already
# a stale bug (1049214) to upgrade to latest upstream and there wasn't a movement to work on a
# fix with this one. yy_get_next_buffer() in dirlex.c would likely take the patch.
