Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Several vulnerabilities have been resolved in libjpeg-turbo, Debian's default JPEG implemenation.

CVE-2016-3616

The cjpeg utility in libjpeg allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) or execute arbitrary code via a crafted file.

This issue got fixed by the same patch that fixed CVE-2018-11213 and CVE-2018-11214.

CVE-2018-1152

libjpeg-turbo has been found vulnerable to a denial of service vulnerability caused by a divide by zero when processing a crafted BMP image. The issue has been resolved by a boundary check.

CVE-2018-11212

The alloc_sarray function in jmemmgr.c allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (divide-by-zero error) via a crafted file.

The issue has been addressed by checking the image size when reading a targa file and throwing an error when image width or height is 0.

CVE-2018-11213 CVE-2018-11214

The get_text_gray_row and get_text_rgb_row functions in rdppm.c both allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (Segmentation fault) via a crafted file.

By checking the range of integer values in PPM text files and adding checks to ensure values are within the specified range, both issues

For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 1:1.3.1-12+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libjpeg-turbo packages.
