Debian: New lcms packages fix multiple vulnerabilities

    Date09 Dec 2008
    Posted ByLinuxSecurity Advisories
    Inadequate enforcement of fixed-length buffer limits allows an attacker to overflow a buffer on the stack, potentially enabling the execution of arbitrary code when a maliciously-crafted image is opened.

    Package        : lcms
    Vulnerability  : multiple vulnerabilities
    Problem type   : local (remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-5316 CVE-2008-5317
    Two vulnerabilities have been found in lcms, a library and set of
    commandline utilities for image color management.  The Common
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
        Inadequate enforcement of fixed-length buffer limits allows an
        attacker to overflow a buffer on the stack, potentially enabling
        the execution of arbitrary code when a maliciously-crafted
        image is opened.
        An integer sign error in reading image gamma data could allow an
        attacker to cause an under-sized buffer to be allocated for
        subsequent image data, with unknown consequences potentially
        including the execution of arbitrary code if a maliciously-crafted
        image is opened.
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.14-1.1+etch1.
    For the upcoming stable distribution (lenny), and the unstable
    distribution (sid), these problems are fixed in version 1.17.dfsg-1.
    We recommend that you upgrade your lcms packages.
