CWE-191 整数下溢(超界折返)

Integer Underflow (Wrap or Wraparound)

结构: Simple

Abstraction: Base

状态: Draft

被利用可能性: unkown


The product subtracts one value from another, such that the result is less than the minimum allowable integer value, which produces a value that is not equal to the correct result.


This can happen in signed and unsigned cases.

范围 影响 注释
Availability ['DoS: Crash, Exit, or Restart', 'DoS: Resource Consumption (CPU)', 'DoS: Resource Consumption (Memory)', 'DoS: Instability'] This weakness will generally lead to undefined behavior and therefore crashes. In the case of overflows involving loop index variables, the likelihood of infinite loops is also high.
Integrity Modify Memory If the value in question is important to data (as opposed to flow), simple data corruption has occurred. Also, if the wrap around results in other conditions such as buffer overflows, further memory corruption may occur.
['Confidentiality', 'Availability', 'Access Control'] ['Execute Unauthorized Code or Commands', 'Bypass Protection Mechanism'] This weakness can sometimes trigger buffer overflows which can be used to execute arbitrary code. This is usually outside the scope of a program's implicit security policy.


The following example subtracts from a 32 bit signed integer.

bad C

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdbool.h>
main (void)
int i;
i = -2147483648;
i = i - 1;
return 0;

The example has an integer underflow. The value of i is already at the lowest negative value possible, so after subtracting 1, the new value of i is 2147483647.
