CVE-2005-1686

Disclosure Date: May 20, 2005
Add MITRE ATT&CK tactics and techniques that apply to this CVE.

Description

Format string vulnerability in gedit 2.10.2 may allow attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a bin file with format string specifiers in the filename. NOTE: while this issue is triggered on the command line by the gedit user, it has been reported that web browsers and email clients could be configured to provide a file name as an argument to gedit, so there is a valid attack that crosses security boundaries.
