Description Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2019-12-02 14:07:42 UTC
An issue was discovered in py-lmdb 0.97. For certain values of mp_flags, mdb_page_touch does not properly set up mc->mc_pg[mc->top], leading to an invalid write operation. NOTE: this outcome occurs when accessing a data.mdb file supplied by an attacker.
