Description Adam Mariš 2016-02-08 10:37:40 UTC
A buffer overflow vulnerability in xdelta3 was reported, allowing arbitrary code execution from input files on some systems.

Upstream patch:


Comment 1 Adam Mariš 2016-02-08 10:37:59 UTC
Fedora 23, package xdelta, is not vulnerable because it currently has xdelta-3.0.9-1.fc23 in stable

Comment 2 Adam Mariš 2016-02-08 10:39:18 UTC
Created xdelta tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-22 [bug 1305464]

Comment 4 Tomas Hoger 2016-05-27 10:03:08 UTC
Currently no plan to address this in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.  xdelta is a leaf package, not required/used by other distribution components.
