Description Avinash Hanwate 2023-11-27 09:33:03 UTC
Multiple out-of-bounds write vulnerabilities exist in the ORCA format nAtoms functionality of Open Babel 3.1.1 and master commit 530dbfa3. A specially-crafted malformed file can lead to arbitrary code execution. An attacker can provide a malicious file to trigger this vulnerability.The loop that stores the coordinates does not check its index against nAtoms.
