CVE-2012-6656

Status Candidate

Overview

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.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2014-175
Posted Sep 8, 2014
Authored by Mandriva | Site mandriva.com

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2014-175 - When converting IBM930 code with iconv(), if IBM930 code which includes invalid multibyte character 0xffff is specified, then iconv() segfaults. Off-by-one error in the __gconv_translit_find function in gconv_trans.c in GNU C Library allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code via vectors related to the CHARSET environment variable and gconv transliteration modules. Crashes were reported in the IBM code page decoding functions (IBM933, IBM935, IBM937, IBM939, IBM1364). The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
