Vulnerability CVE-2017-17821


Published: 2017-12-20   Modified: 2017-12-21

Description:
WTF/wtf/FastBitVector.h in WebKit, as distributed in Safari Technology Preview Release 46, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (buffer overflow) or possibly have unspecified other impact because it calls the FastBitVectorWordOwner::resizeSlow function (in WTF/wtf/FastBitVector.cpp) for a purpose other than initializing a bitvector size, and resizeSlow mishandles cases where the old array length is greater than the new array length.

Type:

CWE-119

(Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer)

Vendor: Apple
Product: Safari 
Version: 46;

CVSS2 => (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
