CVE-2016-4303

Priority
Description
The parse_string function in cjson.c in the cJSON library mishandles
UTF8/16 strings, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(crash) or execute arbitrary code via a non-hex character in a JSON string,
which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow.
Ubuntu-Description
It was discovered that iperf mishandled certain UTF8 and UTF16 strings. A
remote attacker could use this vulnerability to cause a denial of service or
possibly execute arbitrary code.
