CVE-2011-4599

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

Stack-based buffer overflow in the _canonicalize function in common/uloc.c in International Components for Unicode (ICU) before 49.1 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted locale ID that is not properly handled during variant canonicalization.
