Description Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2019-11-28 14:12:08 UTC
An issue was discovered in py-lmdb 0.97. For certain values of md_flags, mdb_node_add does not properly set up a memcpy destination, leading to an invalid write operation. NOTE: this outcome occurs when accessing a data.mdb file supplied by an attacker.
