Description Alexander Bergmann 2022-08-23 06:43:23 UTC

An out-of-bounds read vulnerability exists in the gif2h5 functionality of HDF5
Group libhdf5 1.10.4. A specially-crafted GIF file can lead to code execution.
An attacker can provide a malicious file to trigger this vulnerability.

SUSE:SLE-15-SP1:Update/hdf5              hdf5-1.10.8
SUSE:SLE-15-SP2:Update/hdf5              hdf5-1.10.8
SUSE:SLE-15-SP3:Update/hdf5              hdf5-1.10.8
SUSE:SLE-15-SP4:GA/hdf5                  hdf5-1.10.8

Comment 4 Gabriele Sonnu 2022-09-07 07:19:13 UTC
Not affected since we don't ship the GIF tools. Closing.
