LIN10-2780 : Security Advisory - glibc - CVE-2017-17426

Created: Dec 14, 2017    Updated: Dec 3, 2018
Resolved Date: Jul 10, 2018
Found In Version: 10.17.41.1
Fix Version: 10.17.41.9
Severity: Standard
Applicable for: Wind River Linux LTS 17
Component/s: Toolchain

Description

The malloc function in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.26 could return a memory block that is too small if an attempt is made to allocate an object whose size is close to SIZE_MAX, potentially leading to a subsequent heap overflow. This occurs because the per-thread cache (aka tcache) feature enables a code path that lacks an integer overflow check.
