Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer
Multiple buffer underflows in the base64 decoder in base64.c in (1) bogofilter and (2) bogolexer in bogofilter before 1.2.2 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption and application crash) via an e-mail message with invalid base64 data that begins with an = (equals) character.
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.
