Description Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2021-04-28 19:06:22 UTC
Unbound before 1.9.5 allows an integer overflow in a size calculation in dnscrypt/dnscrypt.c.


Comment 3 Riccardo Schirone 2021-05-06 14:53:13 UTC

There is no available reproducer or proof of concept for this issue, nor it was ever proven the integer overflow can lead to a buffer overflow in practice. Indeed in the original report this issue was considered one that might not be triggered and for this reason its Impact is Moderate.
