CVE-2016-6293 (retired)

Priority
Description
The uloc_acceptLanguageFromHTTP function in common/uloc.cpp in
International Components for Unicode (ICU) through 57.1 for C/C++ does not
ensure that there is a '\0' character at the end of a certain temporary
array, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(out-of-bounds read) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a call
with a long httpAcceptLanguage argument.
