Advisory ID: FLSA:152815
Issue date: 2005-05-18
Product: Red Hat Linux, Fedora Core
Keywords: Bugfix

1. Topic:

Updated libtiff packages that fix various buffer and integer overflows are now available.

The libtiff package contains a library of functions for manipulating TIFF (Tagged Image File Format) image format files.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.3 - i386
Red Hat Linux 9 - i386
Fedora Core 1 - i386

3. Problem description:

During a source code audit, Chris Evans discovered a number of integer overflow bugs that affect libtiff. An attacker who has the ability to trick a user into opening a malicious TIFF file could cause the application linked to libtiff to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CAN-2004-0886 and CAN-2004-0804 to these issues.

Additionally, a number of buffer overflow bugs that affect libtiff have been found. An attacker who has the ability to trick a user into opening a malicious TIFF file could cause the application linked to libtiff to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0803 to this issue.

iDEFENSE has reported an integer overflow bug that affects libtiff. An attacker who has the ability to trick a user into opening a malicious TIFF file could cause the application linked to libtiff to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-1308 to this issue.

Dmitry V. Levin reported another integer overflow in the tiffdump utility. An atacker who has the ability to trick a user into opening a malicious TIFF file with tiffdump could possibly execute arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-1183 to this issue.

All users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported fixes for these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via yum and apt. Many people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use yum issue:

yum update

or to use apt:

apt-get update; apt-get upgrade

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system. This assumes that you have yum or apt-get configured for obtaining Fedora Legacy content. Please visit http://www.fedoralegacy.org/docs for directions on how to configure yum and apt-get.

These packages are GPG signed by Fedora Legacy for security. Our key is available from http://www.fedoralegacy.org/about/security.php

You can verify each package with the following command:

rpm --checksig -v lt;filenamegt;

If you only wish to verify that each package has not been corrupted or tampered with, examine only the sha1sum with the following command:

sha1sum lt;filenamegt;
