CVE-2012-2677

Priority
Description
Integer overflow in the ordered_malloc function in boost/pool/pool.hpp in
Boost Pool before 3.9 makes it easier for context-dependent attackers to
perform memory-related attacks such as buffer overflows via a large memory
chunk size value, which causes less memory to be allocated than expected.
Notes
 mdeslaur> commit 78337 should also be checked.
 mdeslaur> fix is still only in -sandbox repo, and not in trunk or
 mdeslaur> release branches. 1.50 came out without it.
 mdeslaur> vulnerability is in .hpp files, so anything built with
 mdeslaur> boost/pool needs to be rebuilt.
 mdeslaur> only ceph and mdds are in main and use boost/pool/pool.*
 mdeslaur> don't seem to be directly affected. Downgrading to low.
