Slackware-14.2 ChangeLog (2022-11-09)

Wed Nov 9 22:16:30 UTC 2022

  • patches/packages/sysstat-12.7.1-i586-1_slack14.2.txz
    On 32 bit systems, in versions 9.1.16 and newer but prior to 12.7.1,
    allocate_structures contains a size_t overflow in sa_common.c. The
    allocate_structures function insufficiently checks bounds before arithmetic
    multiplication, allowing for an overflow in the size allocated for the
    buffer representing system activities.
    This issue may lead to Remote Code Execution (RCE).

    (* Security fix *)
