CVE-2017-12424

Priority
Description
In shadow before 4.5, the newusers tool could be made to manipulate
internal data structures in ways unintended by the authors. Malformed input
may lead to crashes (with a buffer overflow or other memory corruption) or
other unspecified behaviors. This crosses a privilege boundary in, for
example, certain web-hosting environments in which a Control Panel allows
an unprivileged user account to create subaccounts.
