Package Slug

conan/bison

Vulnerability

Use After Free

Description

GNU Bison has a use-after-free in _obstack_free in lib/obstack.c (called from gram_lex) when a '\0' byte is encountered. NOTE: there is a risk only if Bison is used with untrusted input, and the observed bug happens to cause unsafe behavior with a specific compiler/architecture. The bug report was intended to show that a crash may occur in Bison itself, not that a crash may occur in code that is generated by Bison.

Affected Versions

Version 3.7

Solution

Upgrade to version 3.7.1 or above.
