Id Description
16767 bzip2 Malformed Archive Decompression DoS

bzip2 contains a flaw that may allow a remote denial of service. The issue is triggered due to the handling of malformed bzip2 archives. It is possible for a remote attacker to send a malformed archive, which will cause the application to go into an infinite loop and consume a large amount of disk space and CPU resources, resulting in a loss of availability.
