Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2013-08-05 20:33:52 UTC
From ${URL} :

Three (two in ColorSpace conversion calculator, one in TIFF compare utility) stack-based buffer 
overflow flaws were found in the way icctrans / tiffdiff tools of LittleCMS, the color management 
system, used to process certain ICC color profile / TIFF image format files. Remote attacker could 
provide a specially-crafted ICC color profile / TIFF image format files that, when opened in color 
space conversion calculator (icctrans) or TIFF compare utility (tiffdiff) of LittleCMS would lead 
to that utility crash.


@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please say explicitly if it is ready for the stabilization or not.

  fix CVE-2013-4276 wrt bug #479874

There is already a STABLEREQ bug report for lcms:0 (vulnerable version 1.9-r2) in bug #525262
In order to drop all vulnerable versions

  lcms-1.19 lcms-1.19-r1 lcms-1.19-r2

version 1.19-r3 has to be stabilized for the following arches:

Stable for HPPA.
Comment 4 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-10-27 14:48:09 UTC
lcms:0 will be removed from the tree. After talk with the maintainer we don't need to stabilize here.

Comment 6 ta2002 2015-03-06 13:08:16 UTC
How can this be resolved with insecure versions of 1.9 still in the tree, and with a critical package (app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-baselibs) actually depending on one of the insecure versions?
