nasm: "paste_tokens()" heap-based buffer overflow
Last modified: 2017-08-07 09:41:13 EDT
A heap-based buffer overflow was reported in the "paste_tokens()" function in asm/preproc.c of nasm. An attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a crash or, possible, execute arbitrary code by tricking a user to process a specially crafted file using nasm.
