Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer


Severity Medium
Score 6.8/10


Stack-based buffer overflow in Cisco WebEx Meeting Center T27LB before SP21 EP3 and T27LC before SP22 allows user-assisted remote authenticated users to execute arbitrary code by providing a crafted .atp file and then disconnecting from a meeting. NOTE: since this is a site-specific issue with no expected action for consumers, it might be REJECTed.

  • HIGH

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.
