Description Laura Pardo 2018-05-11 14:56:46 UTC
A flaw was found in the addsn function in serialno.c in libbibcore.a in bibutils through 6.2. A NULL pointer deference in the addsn function in serialno.c in libbibcore.a in bibutils through 6.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash), as demonstrated by copac2xml.
