USN-2901-1: xdelta3 vulnerability
17 February 2016
xdelta3 could be made to crash or run programs if it opened a specially crafted file.
- xdelta3 - Diff utility which works with binary files
It was discovered that xdelta3 incorrectly handled certain files. If a user
or automated system were tricked into processing a specially-crafted file,
a remote attacker could use this issue to cause xdelta3 to crash, resulting
in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.
