Gnome libsoup 'libsoup/soup-body-input-stream.c' Stack Based Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Gnome libsoup is prone to a stack-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to properly bounds-check user-supplied input before copying it to an insufficiently sized memory buffer.

Successful exploits allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code in the context of the vulnerable application. Failed exploit attempts will likely result in denial-of-service conditions.

libsoup 2.58 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
