In BlueZ 5.42, a buffer overflow was observed in "pklg_read_hci" function in
"btsnoop.c" source file. This issue can be triggered by processing a corrupted

Comment 1 Matthias Gerstner 2016-12-05 16:48:25 UTC
The reported bug does not apply to older versions of bluez. None of our codestreams contains the affected function "pklg_read_hci".
