CVE-2008-3916

Disclosure Date: September 04, 2008
Add MITRE ATT&CK tactics and techniques that apply to this CVE.

Description

Heap-based buffer overflow in the strip_escapes function in signal.c in GNU ed before 1.0 allows context-dependent or user-assisted attackers to execute arbitrary code via a long filename. NOTE: since ed itself does not typically run with special privileges, this issue only crosses privilege boundaries when ed is invoked as a third-party component.
