Description Alexander Bergmann 2017-08-30 06:41:43 UTC

In The Sleuth Kit (TSK) 4.4.2, opening a crafted disk image triggers
infinite recursion in dos_load_ext_table() in tsk/vs/dos.c in
libtskvs.a, as demonstrated by mmls.

Upstream is working to resolve this and is planning to incorporate the fix in v2.5 due in early October.
Comment 3 Andreas Stieger 2017-12-03 14:40:55 UTC

Comment 4 Tomáš Chvátal 2019-07-11 11:18:43 UTC
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it is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any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.
