A malicious remote device could exploit these to trigger information disclosure, denial of service and possibly remote code execution. CVE-2020-12862 An out-of-bounds read in SANE Backends before 1.0.30 may allow a malicious device connected to the same local network as the victim to read important information, such as the ASLR offsets of the program, aka GHSL-2020-082.
