Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-12-31 15:27:58 UTC
From ${URL} :

An Out-of-bounds read flaw followed by a crash was found in the bmp2tiff utility (A utility used to create a TIFF file from a Microsoft 
Windows Device Independent Bitmap image file) shipped with libtiff. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted BMP (Bitmap 
Image) file that, when processed by bmp2tiff, would cause bmp2tiff to crash.

Upstream bug:

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

CVE-2014-9330 (
  Integer overflow in tif_packbits.c in bmp2tif in libtiff 4.0.3 allows remote
  attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via crafted BMP image,
  related to dimensions, which triggers an out-of-bounds read.
Comment 2 Yury German Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev 2016-10-31 04:37:58 UTC
Maintainers this was addressed by RedHat in version libtiff-3.9.4-18.
We do not have that version in the tree the lowest being: 3.9.7-r1

Please confirm that this does not apply to the packages so that we can close this bug if this is not an issue.
Comment 3 Aaron Bauman (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2016-11-20 04:27:35 UTC
This was fixed upstream in 4.0.4beta.  No history on whether that particular version landed in the tree so adjusting summary to match upstream changes.  Tree has a proper fixed version that is already stable.
