BlueZ Buffer Overflow and Denial of Service Vulnerabilities

BlueZ is prone to multiple buffer-overflow vulnerabilities and multiple denial-of-service vulnerabilities because it fails to adequately bounds-check user-supplied data before copying it to an insufficiently sized memory buffer..

Attackers can exploit these issues to execute arbitrary code in the context of the user running the affected application. Failed exploit attempts will likely cause a denial-of-service condition.

BlueZ 5.42 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
