Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer


Severity Low
Score 3.5/10


A SQL stored procedure in the Universal Cache component in IBM solidDB 6.0.x before 6.0.1070, 6.3.x before, 6.5.x before, and 7.0.x before allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (uninitialized-memory access and daemon crash) via a call that includes named arguments and default parameter values, but does not include all of the expected arguments.

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.
