Multiple integer overflows in libXpm before 3.5.12, when a program requests parsing XPM extensions on a 64-bit platform, allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write) or execute arbitrary code via (1) the number of extensions or (2) their concatenated length in a crafted XPM file, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow.

CWE ids for CVE-2016-10164

  • The product performs operations on a memory buffer, but it can read from or write to a memory location that is outside of the intended boundary of the buffer.
    Assigned by: nvd@nist.gov (Primary)
  • The product performs a calculation that can produce an integer overflow or wraparound, when the logic assumes that the resulting value will always be larger than the original value. This can introduce other weaknesses when the calculation is used for resource management or execution control.
    Assigned by: nvd@nist.gov (Primary)
  • The product writes data past the end, or before the beginning, of the intended buffer.
