CVE-2008-2357

Status Candidate

Overview

Stack-based buffer overflow in the split_redraw function in split.c in mtr before 0.73, when invoked with the -p (aka --split) option, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted DNS PTR record. NOTE: it could be argued that this is a vulnerability in the ns_name_ntop function in resolv/ns_name.c in glibc and the proper fix should be in glibc; if so, then this should not be treated as a vulnerability in mtr.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory - A stack-based buffer overflow was found in mtr prior to version 0.73 that allowed remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted DNS PTR record, when called with the --split option. The updated packages provide mtr 0.73 which corrects this issue.
