PyCrypto ARC2 buffer overflow
|pycrypto-arc2module-bo (48617)||High Risk|
PyCrypto is vulnerable to a buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the ARC2 module. By sending a specially-crafted request, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
Apply the patch for this vulnerability, available from the Python Cryptography Toolkit GIT Repository. See References.
