Description Avinash Hanwate 2023-11-27 09:17:35 UTC
An out-of-bounds write vulnerability exists in the MOL2 format attribute and value 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.
