CWE ID 121


CVE-2023-34095 is a vulnerability that affects cpdb-libs versions 1.0 through 2.0b4, which provides frontend and backend libraries for the Common Printing Dialog Backends (CPDB) project. The vulnerability is due to buffer overflows caused by improper use of `scanf(3)`. This occurs when strings longer than 1023 characters are read by the `fscanf()` and `scanf()` functions, exceeding the fixed-length buffers of 1024 characters. A patch has been released that limits the maximum string length to be read to 1023 characters. The vulnerability poses a high risk to organizations as it can be exploited remotely, leading to potential loss of confidentiality, integrity, and availability of affected systems.
