Description Marcus Meissner 2018-08-02 05:37:59 UTC

Multiple exploitable buffer overflow vulnerabilities exist in image parsing
functionality of the CFITSIO library version 3.42. Specially crafted images
parsed via the library, can cause a stack-based buffer overflow overwriting
arbitrary data. An attacker can deliver an FIT image to trigger this
vulnerability and potentially gain code execution.

Leap 42.3 has cfitsio version 3.43 through maintenance update which has this fixed:

This is automated batch bugzilla cleanup.

The openSUSE 42.3 changed to end-of-life (EOL [1]) status. As such
it is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any
further security or bug fix updates.
As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
openSUSE (At this moment openSUSE Leap 15.1, 15.0 and Tumbleweed) please
feel free to reopen this bug against that version (!you must update the
"Version" component in the bug fields, do not just reopen please), or
alternatively create a new ticket.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed
during the lifetime of the release.
