Debian Security Advisory
DLA-2083-1 hiredis -- LTS security update
- Date Reported:
- 29 Jan 2020
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2020-7105.
- More information:
It was discovered that there were a large number of NULL pointer dereferences due to unchecked return values from malloc and friends in hiredis, a minimalistic C client library.
async.c and dict.c in libhiredis.a in hiredis through 0.14.0 allow a NULL pointer dereference because malloc return values are unchecked.
For Debian 8
Jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 0.11.0-4+deb8u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your hiredis packages.
