Arch Linux Security Advisory ASA-201811-18
==========================================

Severity: High
Date : 2018-11-20
CVE-ID : CVE-2017-9935 CVE-2017-11613 CVE-2017-18013 CVE-2018-5784
CVE-2018-7456 CVE-2018-8905 CVE-2018-10779 CVE-2018-10963
CVE-2018-18557 CVE-2018-18661
Package : lib32-libtiff
Type : multiple issues
Remote : Yes
Link : https://security.archlinux.org/AVG-791

Summary
=======

The package lib32-libtiff before version 4.0.10-1 is vulnerable to
multiple issues including arbitrary code execution, denial of service
and information disclosure.

Resolution
==========

Upgrade to 4.0.10-1.

# pacman -Syu "lib32-libtiff>=4.0.10-1"

The problems have been fixed upstream in version 4.0.10.

Workaround
==========

None.

Description
===========

- CVE-2017-9935 (arbitrary code execution)

In LibTIFF before 4.0.10, there is a heap-based buffer overflow in the
t2p_write_pdf function in tools/tiff2pdf.c. This heap overflow could
lead to different damages. For example, a crafted TIFF document can
lead to an out-of-bounds read in TIFFCleanup, an invalid free in
TIFFClose or t2p_free, memory corruption in t2p_readwrite_pdf_image, or
a double free in t2p_free. Given these possibilities, it probably could
cause arbitrary code execution.

- CVE-2017-11613 (denial of service)

In LibTIFF before 4.0.10, there is a denial of service vulnerability in
the TIFFOpen function triggered by resource consumption via crafted
input files. During the TIFFOpen process, td_imagelength is not
checked. The value of td_imagelength can be directly controlled by an
input file. In the ChopUpSingleUncompressedStrip function, the
_TIFFCheckMalloc function is called based on td_imagelength. If we set
the value of td_imagelength close to the amount of system memory, it
will hang the system or trigger the OOM killer.

- CVE-2017-18013 (denial of service)

A null-pointer dereference issue has been found in libtiff before
4.0.10, in the TIFFPrintDirectory() function in tiffinfo.c, while
parsing the "1 Strips: " section of a crafted image, as demonstrated by
a tiffinfo tool crash.

- CVE-2018-5784 (denial of service)

In LibTIFF before 4.0.10, there is an uncontrolled resource consumption
in the TIFFSetDirectory function of tif_dir.c. Remote attackers could
leverage this vulnerability to cause a denial of service via a crafted
tif file. This occurs because the declared number of directory entries
is not validated against the actual number of directory entries.

- CVE-2018-7456 (denial of service)

A null pointer dereference occurs in the function TIFFPrintDirectory in
tif_print.c in LibTIFF before 4.0.10 when using the tiffinfo tool to
print crafted TIFF information.

- CVE-2018-8905 (arbitrary code execution)

In LibTIFF before 4.0.10, a heap-based buffer overflow (out-of-bounds
write) occurs in the function LZWDecodeCompat in tif_lzw.c via a
crafted TIFF file, as demonstrated by the tiff2ps tool.

- CVE-2018-10779 (information disclosure)

A heap-based out-of-bounds read has been found in libtiff before
4.0.10, in the TIFFWriteScanline() function. The issue is caused by a
uint32_t overflow on 32-bit systems.

- CVE-2018-10963 (denial of service)

The TIFFWriteDirectorySec() function in tif_dirwrite.c in LibTIFF
before 4.0.10 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(assertion failure and application crash) via a crafted file.

- CVE-2018-18557 (arbitrary code execution)

LibTIFF before 4.0.10 (with JBIG enabled) decodes arbitrarily-sized
JBIG into a buffer, ignoring the buffer size, which leads to a
tif_jbig.c JBIGDecode out-of-bounds write.

- CVE-2018-18661 (denial of service)

A null-pointer dereference has been found in LibTIFF before 4.0.10 in
the LZWDecode() function in the file tif_lzw.c.

Impact
======

A remote attacker might be able to cause a denial of service or execute
arbitrary code on the affected host via a crafted picture file.
