Ubuntu 10.04 LTS / 12.04 LTS / 14.04 LTS / 14.10 : tiff regression (USN-2553-2)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2015-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2015-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

USN-2553-1 fixed vulnerabilities in LibTIFF. One of the security fixes
caused a regression when saving certain TIFF files with a Predictor
tag. The problematic patch has been temporarily backed out until a
more complete fix is available.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

William Robinet discovered that LibTIFF incorrectly handled certain
malformed images. If a user or automated system were tricked into
opening a specially crafted image, a remote attacker could crash the
application, leading to a denial of service, or possibly execute
arbitrary code with user privileges. (CVE-2014-8127, CVE-2014-8128,
CVE-2014-8129, CVE-2014-8130)

Paris Zoumpouloglou discovered that LibTIFF incorrectly
handled certain malformed BMP images. If a user or automated
system were tricked into opening a specially crafted BMP
image, a remote attacker could crash the application,
leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2014-9330)

Michal Zalewski discovered that LibTIFF incorrectly handled
certain malformed images. If a user or automated system were
tricked into opening a specially crafted image, a remote
attacker could crash the application, leading to a denial of
service, or possibly execute arbitrary code with user
privileges. (CVE-2014-9655).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected libtiff4 and / or libtiff5 packages.
