Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : file (MDVSA-2014:116)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 74449
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionUpdated file packages fix security vulnerabilities :
A flaw was found in the way file's Composite Document Files (CDF) format parser handle CDF files with many summary info entries. The cdf_unpack_summary_info() function unnecessarily repeatedly read the info from the same offset. This led to many file_printf() calls in cdf_file_property_info(), which caused file to use an excessive amount of CPU time when parsing a specially crafted CDF file (CVE-2014-0237).
A flaw was found in the way file parsed property information from Composite Document Files (CDF) files. A property entry with 0 elements triggers an infinite loop (CVE-2014-0238).
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
