Description Andrej Nemec 2017-07-19 15:03:39 UTC
The ole_init function in ole.c in catdoc 0.95 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer underflow and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted file, i.e., data is written to memory addresses before the beginning of the tmpBuf buffer.
