Description Lars Hartmann 2008-04-23 11:22:16 UTC
Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in Blender, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error within the "imb_loadhdr()" function in source/blender/imbuf/intern/radiance_hdr.c, which can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow by e.g. tricking a user into opening a specially crafted Blender (*.blend) file containing a malicious Radiance RGBE image.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is confirmed in version 2.45. Other versions may also be affected.

Fixed in the SVN repository.

I bumped blender in cvs with the following patch:

The new revisions are:
blender-2.45-r3: ~arch (masked for >=media-video/ffmpeg-0.4.9_p20080326)
blender-2.45-r2 ~arch
blender-2.43-r1 stable candidate

CVE-2008-1103 is public now too:
Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in Blender have unknown impact and attack
vectors, related to "temporary file issues."

I don't know what the situation is with a patch there. Markus, do you?

Please note that cve-2008-1103-1.patch and cve-2008-1103-2.patch in Fedora packages do not resolve CVE-2008-1103 completely, only /tmp/quit.blend part of the issue.  See also:

Thanks for the info.

Reopening for maintainer advise.
Comment 16 Samuli Suominen gentoo-dev 2008-12-22 14:44:48 UTC
Hmm. Only blender-2.48a-r3 is left in tree.. if the CVE fixes ever went upstream, they should be in by now.
Comment 17 Sean Amoss gentoo-dev Security 2012-07-16 23:21:56 UTC
CVE-2008-1102: fixed in =media-gfx/blender-2.43-r2 / GLSA 200805-12
CVE-2008-1103: patch had an incomplete fix in =media-gfx/blender-2.43-r2 / GLSA 200805-12. First fixed was =media-gfx/blender-2.48a-r3
Comment 18 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-02-05 16:12:18 UTC
@security: blender is now package.masked and older versions has been removed. Your call what do you want to do from here.
