CWE ID 787


CVE-2023-43641 is a vulnerability found in versions 2.2.1 and earlier of libcue, a library used for parsing and extracting data from CUE sheets. This vulnerability allows for out-of-bounds array access. Exploitation can occur when a user of the GNOME desktop environment downloads a cue sheet from a malicious webpage, which is then automatically scanned by tracker-miners since it is saved to the Downloads folder. Because the file has a .cue extension, tracker-miners use libcue to parse it, allowing an attacker to gain code execution. The issue has been patched in version 2.3.0. This vulnerability has a high severity rating, with potential impacts on confidentiality and integrity, requiring user interaction and network access for exploitation.
