CWE ids for CVE-2019-5086

  • 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 performs a calculation to determine how much memory to allocate, but an integer overflow can occur that causes less memory to be allocated than expected, leading to a buffer overflow.
    Assigned by: talos-cna@cisco.com (Secondary)
  • The product writes data past the end, or before the beginning, of the intended buffer.
