Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : libtiff (cve_2013_4231_buffer_overflow)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party
software.

Description :

The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address
security updates :

- Multiple buffer overflows in libtiff before 4.0.3 allow
remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(out-of-bounds write) via a crafted (1) extension block
in a GIF image or (2) GIF raster image to
tools/gif2tiff.c or (3) a long filename for a TIFF image
to tools/rgb2ycbcr.c. NOTE: vectors 1 and 3 are disputed
by Red Hat, which states that the input cannot exceed
the allocated buffer size. (CVE-2013-4231)

- Use-after-free vulnerability in the
t2p_readwrite_pdf_image function in tools/ tiff2pdf.c in
libtiff 4.0.3 allows remote attackers to cause a denial
of service (crash) or possible execute arbitrary code
via a crafted TIFF image. (CVE-2013-4232)
