Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer
A vulnerability classified as critical was found in DriverGenius 22.214.171.1246. This vulnerability affects the function 0x9C406104/0x9C40A108 in the library mydrivers64.sys of the component IOCTL Handler. The manipulation leads to memory corruption. An attack has to be approached locally. The exploit has been disclosed to the public and may be used. The identifier of this vulnerability is VDB-224236.
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.
