Description Laura Pardo 2018-12-04 22:45:26 UTC
A flaw was found in Netwide Assembler (NASM) 2.14rc16. There is an illegal address access in is_mmacro function at asm/preproc.c that will cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds array access) because a certain conversion can result in a negative integer.
