CVE-2015-1473

Status Candidate

Overview

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.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2015-2589-01
Posted Dec 9, 2015
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2015-2589-01 - The glibc packages provide the standard C libraries, POSIX thread libraries, standard math libraries, and the Name Server Caching Daemon used by multiple programs on the system. Without these libraries, the Linux system cannot function correctly. It was discovered that the nss_files backend for the Name Service Switch in glibc would return incorrect data to applications or corrupt the heap. A local attacker could potentially use this flaw to execute arbitrary code on the system. It was discovered that, under certain circumstances, glibc's getaddrinfo() function would send DNS queries to random file descriptors. An attacker could potentially use this flaw to send DNS queries to unintended recipients, resulting in information disclosure or data loss due to the application encountering corrupted data.

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-2519-1
Posted Feb 26, 2015
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 2519-1 - Arnaud Le Blanc discovered that the GNU C Library incorrectly handled file descriptors when resolving DNS queries under high load. This may cause a denial of service in other applications, or an information leak. This issue only affected Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. It was discovered that the GNU C Library incorrectly handled receiving a positive answer while processing the network name when performing DNS resolution. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause the GNU C Library to hang, resulting in a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.
