Vulnerabilities > CVE-2015-8397 - Out-Of-Bounds Read vulnerability in Grassroots Dicom Project Grassroots Dicom
The JPEGLSCodec::DecodeExtent function in MediaStorageAndFileFormat/gdcmJPEGLSCodec.cxx in Grassroots DICOM (aka GDCM) before 2.6.2 allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information from process memory or cause a denial of service (application crash) via an embedded JPEG-LS image with dimensions larger than the selected region in a (1) two-dimensional or (2) three-dimensional DICOM image file, which triggers an out-of-bounds read.
Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE)
Common Attack Pattern Enumeration and Classification (CAPEC)
- Overread Buffers An adversary attacks a target by providing input that causes an application to read beyond the boundary of a defined buffer. This typically occurs when a value influencing where to start or stop reading is set to reflect positions outside of the valid memory location of the buffer. This type of attack may result in exposure of sensitive information, a system crash, or arbitrary code execution.

|description||CENSUS S.A. reports : GDCM versions 2.6.0 and 2.6.1 (and possibly previous versions) are prone to an integer overflow vulnerability which leads to a buffer overflow and potentially to remote code execution. GDCM versions 2.6.0 and 2.6.1 (and possibly previous versions) are prone to an out-of-bounds read vulnerability due to missing checks.|
