CVE-2012-0060 rpm: insufficient validation of region tags
Last modified: 2013-10-13 21:01:33 EDT
Multiple improper input validation flaws were found in the code for handling region tags within headerLoad, rpmReadSignature and headerVerify functions of RPM library. These functions are used by rpm utility to read the signature header section and verify the values of header structures (i.e. signature and header sections) of a RPM file respectively. An attacker could create a specially-crafted RPM file that, when read, could cause RPM to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code.
