CVE-2007-5849

New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

Integer underflow in the asn1_get_string function in the SNMP back end (backend/snmp.c) for CUPS 1.2 through 1.3.4 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted SNMP response that triggers a stack-based buffer overflow.
