Vulnerability CVE-2019-17362


Published: 2019-10-08   Modified: 2019-10-09

Description:
In LibTomCrypt through 1.18.2, the der_decode_utf8_string function (in der_decode_utf8_string.c) does not properly detect certain invalid UTF-8 sequences. This allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and crash) or read information from other memory locations via carefully crafted DER-encoded data.

Type:

CWE-125

(Out-of-bounds Read)

Vendor: Debian
Product: Debian linux 
Version: 8.0;
Vendor: Libtom
Product: Libtomcrypt 
Version: 1.18.2;
