VuXML ID 2220827b-c732-11ec-b272-901b0e934d69
Discovery 2021-10-04
Entry 2022-04-29

hiredis maintainers report:

Hiredis is vulnurable to integer overflow if provided maliciously crafted or corrupted RESP mult-bulk protocol data. When parsing multi-bulk (array-like) replies, hiredis fails to check if count * sizeof(redisReply*) can be represented in SIZE_MAX. If it can not, and the calloc() call doesn't itself make this check, it would result in a short allocation and subsequent buffer overflow.
