1 CVE-2008-5078 119 Exec Code Overflow 2008-12-19 2010-08-21
6.8
User Remote Medium Not required Partial Partial Partial
Multiple buffer overflows in the (1) recognize_eps_file function (src/psgen.c) and (2) tilde_subst function (src/util.c) in GNU enscript 1.6.1, and possibly earlier, might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via an epsf escape sequence with a long filename.
2 CVE-2008-3916 119 Exec Code Overflow 2008-09-04 2011-02-17
9.3
None Remote Medium Not required Complete Complete Complete
Heap-based buffer overflow in the strip_escapes function in signal.c in GNU ed before 1.0 allows context-dependent or user-assisted attackers to execute arbitrary code via a long filename. NOTE: since ed itself does not typically run with special privileges, this issue only crosses privilege boundaries when ed is invoked as a third-party component.
3 CVE-2008-3863 119 Exec Code Overflow 2008-10-23 2012-11-05
7.6
None Remote High Not required Complete Complete Complete
Stack-based buffer overflow in the read_special_escape function in src/psgen.c in GNU Enscript 1.6.1 and 1.6.4 beta, when the -e (aka special escapes processing) option is enabled, allows user-assisted remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted ASCII file, related to the setfilename command.
4 CVE-2008-2377 119 DoS Exec Code Overflow 2008-08-08 2009-06-19
7.6
None Remote High Not required Complete Complete Complete
Use-after-free vulnerability in the _gnutls_handshake_hash_buffers_clear function in lib/gnutls_handshake.c in libgnutls in GnuTLS 2.3.5 through 2.4.0 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via TLS transmission of data that is improperly used when the peer calls gnutls_handshake within a normal session, leading to attempted access to a deallocated libgcrypt handle.
5 CVE-2008-1948 189 DoS Exec Code Overflow 2008-05-21 2010-08-21
10.0
None Remote Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
The _gnutls_server_name_recv_params function in lib/ext_server_name.c in libgnutls in gnutls-serv in GnuTLS before 2.2.4 does not properly calculate the number of Server Names in a TLS 1.0 Client Hello message during extension handling, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a zero value for the length of Server Names, which leads to a buffer overflow in session resumption data in the pack_security_parameters function, aka GNUTLS-SA-2008-1-1.
6 CVE-2008-1685 119 Overflow 2008-04-06 2012-10-29
6.8
User Remote Medium Not required Partial Partial Partial
** DISPUTED ** gcc 4.2.0 through 4.3.0 in GNU Compiler Collection, when casts are not used, considers the sum of a pointer and an int to be greater than or equal to the pointer, which might lead to removal of length testing code that was intended as a protection mechanism against integer overflow and buffer overflow attacks, and provide no diagnostic message about this removal. NOTE: the vendor has determined that this compiler behavior is correct according to section 6.5.6 of the C99 standard (aka ISO/IEC 9899:1999).
7 CVE-2007-6613 119 DoS Exec Code Overflow 2008-01-03 2008-10-11
5.0
None Remote Low Not required None None Partial
Stack-based buffer overflow in the print_iso9660_recurse function in iso-info (src/iso-info.c) in GNU Compact Disc Input and Control Library (libcdio) 0.79 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (core dump) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a disk or image that contains a long joilet file name.
