Description Raphael Marichez (Falco) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-04-12 03:59:59 UTC
As said in , tiffinfo crashes with the proposed files.

My tiff-3.7.3 (last stable, x86) is affected.

kuickshow, and xzgv totally crash.

gv, Gimp and konqueror can't display the picture but they recover the error and they don't crash.
My Firefox doesn't display the picture at all.

However, it may be possible to send a special .tiff file via a mail or a web server and to cause the client's application to crash. Since i wasn't able to find an example of mail-application or web-application crashing, please check if this is possible.

Thanks to ed who has indicated us the bug.
Comment 1 Raphael Marichez (Falco) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-04-13 06:30:05 UTC
This seems related with #1029 :
which has a CVE entry :
Or, at least, it has the same effects (application crash)

Corrected in upstream CVS.

graphics / taviso: care to patch ?
Comment 3 Sune Kloppenborg Jeppesen gentoo-dev 2006-04-25 22:36:07 UTC
Upstream bug 1102 is CVE-2006-202{4-6}. 

Fixes are here:
Comment 4 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-04-28 11:05:13 UTC
Ccing marienz as he did a recent tiff bump.
Marien: Does it include this vulnerability fix ?
Comment 5 Marien Zwart (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-04-28 11:14:51 UTC
A tiff bump? Me? :)

The only thing I committed to tiff was a digest fix for bug 131396. For bumps you want vapier or before that sekretarz.
Comment 6 Raphael Marichez (Falco) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-05-05 10:03:14 UTC

Other vulns are related to the original one, including possible code execution. See SA-19838
It's note a B3 anymore, it's an A2.

it seems hard to "grep" the different patches from the CVS tree.
3.8.1 is out since a while and corrects the vuln.
3.8.2 is in portage and ~arched.

Graphics team, do you want to mark stable 3.8.2 or (introduce in portage and) mark stable 3.8.1 ?

Comment 7 Raphael Marichez (Falco) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-05-09 10:12:34 UTC
Hi all, i've merged the diff from debian [1] correcting CVE-2006-202[456], and the one from Red Hat [2] correcting CVE-2006-2120. Debian hasn't corrected CVE-2006-2120 issue, don't ask me why.

Please verify this patch and add it to portage, then mark stable either 3.8.1, or 3.7.3/3.7.4 patched.

adm64, ppc, sparc, x86 : 3.7.4
alpha, hppa, ppc64, sh : 3.7.3

stable on alpha. 
Comment 14 Samuli Suominen gentoo-dev 2006-05-27 05:22:18 UTC
I unkeyworded media-libs/tiff-3.8.2 , and emerged it with collision-protect. Builds fine on x86.

Runtime testcase I made was,

tar xfvz pics-3.8.0.tar.gz
cd libtiffpic
tiff2pdf g3test.tif > g3test.pdf

And verified conversion went okay with PDF reader. Good to go stable on x86.

amd64 stable.
Comment 16 Steve Arnold gentoo-dev 2006-05-28 11:20:59 UTC
Marked stable on x86, and versions prior to 3.7.3 removed.  Still several arches to go (which I can't test on) for complete stable on 3.8.2...
Comment 17 Mark Loeser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-05-28 11:26:04 UTC
compnerd: pretty pretty please let the x86 team handle our bugs in the future :)

Err, and by compnerd, I mean nerdboy...for some reason, I always mix you two up...
