AFFLIB multiple buffer overflow
|afflib-multiple-bo (33961)||High Risk|
AFFLIB and applications using the affected library are vulnerable to multiple stack-based buffer overflows, caused by improper bounds checking by the aimage/aimage.cpp, lib/vnode_afd.cpp, lib/vnode_ewf.cpp, lib/vnode_s3.cpp, and lib/s3.cpp files. By exploiting this vulnerability, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
Upgrade to the latest version of AFFLIB (2.2.8 or later), available from the AFFLIB Web site. See References.

- CVE-2007-2053: Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in AFFLIB before 2.2.6 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via (1) a long LastModified value in an S3 XML response in lib/s3.cpp; (2) a long (a) path or (b) bucket in an S3 URL in lib/vnode_s3.cpp; or (3) a long (c) EFW, (d) AFD, or (c) aimage file path. NOTE: the aimage vector (3c) has since been recalled from the researcher's original advisory, since the code is not called in any version of AFFLIB.
