CVE-2015-3166

Description

The server regularly ignores the return value of certain standard library functions, such as sprintf() and putenv(), which can fail under memory exhaustion. This could, in principle, have a variety of security-relevant effects. For example, an unnoticed sprintf() error could permit disclosure of prior buffer contents. A particular putenv() failure could cause GSSAPI authentication to consult the wrong keytab file. Reducing such exploits to practice is expected to be impossible in most configurations, given the requirement for such an intricate coincidence of system state.
