Vulnerability Details

CVE-ID: CVE-2018-20796
Description: GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by an uncontrolled recursion in the check_dst_limits_calc_pos_1 in posix/regexec.c. By using a specially-crafted command, a local attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause the application to crash.

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-9169
Description: GNU glibc is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by a buffer over-read flaw in the proceed_next_node function in posix/regexec.c. By sending a specially-crafted argument using a case-insensitive regular-expression match, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system.
