Description John Helmert III archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2023-04-27 01:22:28 UTC

Buffer Overflow vulnerability in HDFGroup hdf5-h5dump 1.12.0 through 1.13.0 allows attackers to cause a denial of service via h5tools_str_sprint in /hdf5/tools/lib/h5tools_str.c.

Surprisingly, $URL does appear to contain an upstream report, but it's
an image of a response from some HDF5 support person who says they
filed a bug, SUPPORT-1508.
