Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : file (MDVSA-2014:131)

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


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Updated file packages fix security vulnerabilities :

A flaw was found in the way file parsed property information from
Composite Document Files (CDF) files, where the mconvert() function
did not correctly compute the truncated pascal string size
(CVE-2014-3478).

Multiple flaws were found in the way file parsed property information
from Composite Document Files (CDF) files, due to insufficient
boundary checks on buffers (CVE-2014-3479, CVE-2014-3480,
CVE-2014-3487).

Note: these issues were announced as part of the upstream PHP 5.4.30
release, as PHP bundles file's libmagic library. Their announcement
also references an issue in CDF file parsing, CVE-2014-0207, which was
previously fixed in the file package in MGASA-2014-0252, but was not
announced at that time.
