Impact: Low
Public: 2010-01-11
Bugzilla: 598197: CVE-2010-2089 Python: Memory corruption in audioop module
IAVA: 2012-A-0020

Details

The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:

The audioop module in Python 2.7 and 3.2 does not verify the relationships between size arguments and byte string lengths, which allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) via crafted arguments, as demonstrated by a call to audioop.reverse with a one-byte string, a different vulnerability than CVE-2010-1634.
