Description

An issue was discovered in uriparser before 0.9.0. UriQuery.c allows an out-of-bounds write via a uriComposeQuery* or uriComposeQueryEx* function because the '&' character is mishandled in certain contexts.

Solution(s)

  • centos-upgrade-uriparser
  • centos-upgrade-uriparser-debuginfo
  • centos-upgrade-uriparser-devel
