Description Marcus Meissner 2018-11-28 16:34:29 UTC

An issue was discovered in The Sleuth Kit (TSK) through 4.6.4.
The "tsk_getu16(hfs->fs_info.endian, &rec_buf[rec_off2])" call in hfs_dir_open_meta_cb in
tsk/fs/hfs_dent.c does not properly check boundaries. This results in
a crash (SEGV on unknown address
READ memory access)
when reading too much in the destination buffer.

this is because the boundary check in hfs_traverse_cat wasn't done properly.

Kind Regards,

Jordy Zomer

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it is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any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.
