Description Tomas Hoger 2012-02-29 10:31:54 UTC
It was discovered that RPM did not properly validate region size in headerLoad() when loading header from an RPM file, allowing region size to exceed containing header size.  A malformed or malicious RPM file could cause RPM to crash and possibly execute arbitrary code before file signature was properly verified.
