Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : libtiff (MDVSA-2013:208)

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Updated libtiff packages fix security vulnerabilities :

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way tiff2pdf of
libtiff performed write of TIFF image content into particular PDF
document file, in the tp_process_jpeg_strip() function. A remote
attacker could provide a specially crafted TIFF image format file,
that when processed by tiff2pdf would lead to tiff2pdf executable
crash or, potentially, arbitrary code execution with the privileges of
the user running the tiff2pdf binary (CVE-2013-1960).

A stack-based buffer overflow was found in the way tiff2pdf of libtiff
performed write of TIFF image content into particular PDF document
file, when malformed image-length and resolution values are used in
the TIFF file. A remote attacker could provide a specially crafted
TIFF image format file, that when processed by tiff2pdf would lead to
tiff2pdf executable crash (CVE-2013-1961).

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 9.3
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
CVSS Temporal Score : 8.1
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
