Description Sebastian Krahmer 2015-08-25 08:20:52 UTC

Multiple integer overflows in the evbuffer API in Libevent 2.0.x before 2.0.22
and 2.1.x before 2.1.5-beta allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial
of service or possibly have other unspecified impact via "insanely large inputs"
to the (1) evbuffer_add, (2) evbuffer_prepend, (3) evbuffer_expand, (4)
exbuffer_reserve_space, or (5) evbuffer_read function, which triggers a
heap-based buffer overflow or an infinite loop.  NOTE: this identifier was SPLIT
from CVE-2014-6272 per ADT3 due to different affected versions.
