Fixed In Version: zlib 1.2.12
Doc Type: If docs needed, set a value
Doc Text:
An out-of-bounds access flaw was found in zlib, which allows memory corruption when deflating (ex: when compressing) if the input has many distant matches. For some rare inputs with a large number of distant matches (crafted payloads), the buffer into which the compressed or deflated data is written can overwrite the distance symbol table which it overlays. This issue results in corrupted output due to invalid distances, which leads to out-of-bound access, corrupting the memory and potentially crashing the application.

Description Rohit Keshri 2022-03-24 05:24:21 UTC
Greetings list, I was recently trying to track down a reproducible crash
in a compressor. Believe it or not, it really was a bug in
zlib-1.2.11 when compressing (not decompressing!) certain inputs.

I reported it upstream, but it turns out the issue has been public since
2018, but the patch never made it into a release. As far as I know,
nobody ever assigned it a CVE.

https://github.com/madler/zlib/commit/5c44459c3b28a9bd3283aaceab7c615f8020c531

As far as I can tell, no distros have picked this up.

Tavis.
