Package        : bluez
Version        : 5.43-2+deb9u5
CVE ID         : CVE-2019-8921 CVE-2019-8922 CVE-2021-41229
Debian Bug     : 1000262

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in BlueZ, the Linux Bluetooth
protocol stack. An attacker could cause a denial-of-service (DoS) or
leak information.


    SDP infoleak; the vulnerability lies in the handling of a
    SVC_ATTR_REQ by the SDP implementation of BlueZ. By crafting a
    malicious CSTATE, it is possible to trick the server into
    returning more bytes than the buffer actually holds, resulting in
    leaking arbitrary heap data.


    SDP Heap Overflow; this vulnerability lies in the SDP protocol
    handling of attribute requests as well. By requesting a huge
    number of attributes at the same time, an attacker can overflow
    the static buffer provided to hold the response.


    sdp_cstate_alloc_buf allocates memory which will always be hung in
    the singly linked list of cstates and will not be freed. This will
    cause a memory leak over time. The data can be a very large
    object, which can be caused by an attacker continuously sending
    sdp packets and this may cause the service of the target device to

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your bluez packages.
