Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer
Buffer overflow in LHA 1.14 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors related to "command line processing," a different vulnerability than CVE-2004-0771. NOTE: this issue may be REJECTED if there are not any cases in which LHA is setuid or is otherwise used across security boundaries.
CWE-119 - Buffer Overflow
Buffer overflow attacks involve data transit and operations exceeding the restricted memory buffer, thereby corrupting or overwriting data in adjacent memory locations. Such overflow allows the attacker to run arbitrary code or manipulate the existing code to cause privilege escalation, data breach, denial of service, system crash and even complete system compromise. Given that languages such as C and C++ lack default safeguards against overwriting or accessing data in their memory, applications utilizing these languages are most susceptible to buffer overflows attacks.
