CVE-2017-13760 (

In The Sleuth Kit (TSK) 4.4.2, fls hangs on a corrupt exfat image in tsk_img_read() in tsk/img/img_io.c in libtskimg.a.

@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.
Comment 1 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2017-08-30 08:01:53 UTC
In The Sleuth Kit (TSK) 4.4.2, opening a crafted disk image triggers infinite recursion in dos_load_ext_table() in tsk/vs/dos.c in libtskvs.a, as demonstrated by mmls.

In The Sleuth Kit (TSK) 4.4.2, opening a crafted ISO 9660 image triggers an out-of-bounds read in iso9660_proc_dir() in tsk/fs/iso9660_dent.c in libtskfs.a, as demonstrated by fls.

Thank you, could you please confirm if prior versions (especially 4.0.2) are vulnerable? if that's the case please call for stabilization when ready. If not please let us know to reassign whiteboard to reflect the real status.

Thank you

@maintainer(s), Please set your keywords, package list and cc arches to start stabilization. Thank you.

Arches, please proceed with the stabilization.

@ChrisADR, I didn't see anything about prior versions in the CVEs. I'll more likely clean the prior versions after this stabilization.
