Description

Integer signedness error in the archive_write_zip_data function in archive_write_set_format_zip.c in libarchive 3.1.2 and earlier, when running on 64-bit machines, allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via unspecified vectors, which triggers an improper conversion between unsigned and signed types, leading to a buffer overflow.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-bsdtar
  • suse-upgrade-libarchive
  • suse-upgrade-libarchive-devel
  • suse-upgrade-libarchive13
  • suse-upgrade-libarchive13-32bit

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
