Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2020-04-10 22:45:33 UTC
CVE-2020-8432 (
  In Das U-Boot through 2020.01, a double free has been found in the cmd/gpt.c
  do_rename_gpt_parts() function. Double freeing may result in a
  write-what-where condition, allowing an attacker to execute arbitrary code.
  NOTE: this vulnerablity was introduced when attempting to fix a memory leak
  identified by static analysis.
