USN-277-1: TIFF library vulnerabilities
Posted on: 05/03/2006 04:32 PM

A new TIFF library vulnerabilities update is available for Ubuntu Linux. Here the announcement:

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-277-1 May 03, 2006
tiff vulnerabilities
CVE-2006-2024, CVE-2006-2025, CVE-2006-2026, CVE-2006-2120

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)
Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger)

The following packages are affected:


The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 3.6.1-5ubuntu0.3 (for Ubuntu 5.04), or 3.7.3-1ubuntu1.1 (for
Ubuntu 5.10). After a standard system upgrade you need to reboot your
computer to effect the necessary changes, since this library is used
by many client and server applications.

Details follow:

Tavis Ormandy and Andrey Kiselev discovered that libtiff did not
sufficiently verify the validity of TIFF files. By tricking an user
into opening a specially crafted TIFF file with any application that
uses libtiff, an attacker could exploit this to crash the application
or even execute arbitrary code with the application's privileges.
