GLSA-200904-19 : LittleCMS: Multiple vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 36198
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200904-19 (LittleCMS: Multiple vulnerabilities)
RedHat reported a NULL pointer dereference flaw while processing monochrome ICC profiles (CVE-2009-0793).
Chris Evans of Google discovered the following vulnerabilities:
LittleCMS contains severe memory leaks (CVE-2009-0581).
LittleCMS is prone to multiple integer overflows, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2009-0723).
The ReadSetOfCurves() function is vulnerable to stack-based buffer overflows when called from code paths without a bounds check on channel counts (CVE-2009-0733).
A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system to open a specially crafted file containing a malicious ICC profile, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application or memory exhaustion, leading to a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll LittleCMS users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/lcms-1.18-r1'
