Debian Security Advisory
DLA-2228-2 json-c -- LTS security update
- Date Reported:
- 31 May 2020
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 960326.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2020-12762.
- More information:
The json-c shared library had an integer overflow and out-of-bounds write via a large JSON file, as demonstrated by printbuf_memappend.
This follow-up version now uses an upstream sanctioned patch that was specifically published for json-c 0.11, rather than a self-backported patch.
For Debian 8
Jessie, this problem has been fixed in version 0.11-4+deb8u2.
We recommend that you upgrade your json-c packages.
