vulnerability bulletin CVE-2013-1960

libtiff: buffer overflow of tiff2pdf t2_process_jpeg_strip

Synthesis of the vulnerability

An attacker can invite the victim to open a malicious TIFF image with tiff2pdf, in order to create a denial of service or to execute code.
Impacted products: Debian, Fedora, LibTIFF, MBS, openSUSE, Solaris, RHEL, Slackware.
Severity: 2/4.
Creation date: 02/05/2013.
Identifiers: 952158, BID-59609, CERTFR-2014-AVI-112, CVE-2013-1960, DSA-2698-1, FEDORA-2013-7361, FEDORA-2013-7369, MDVSA-2013:208, openSUSE-SU-2013:0812-1, openSUSE-SU-2013:0812-2, openSUSE-SU-2013:0922-1, openSUSE-SU-2013:0944-1, RHSA-2014:0222-01, RHSA-2014:0223-01, SSA:2013-290-01, VIGILANCE-VUL-12743.

Description of the vulnerability

The tiff2pdf tool of the libtiff suite is used to convert a TIFF image to a PDF document.

The t2_process_jpeg_strip() function of the tiff2pdf.c file processes the strip encoding of image data. However, if the TIFF image uses invalid values, a buffer overflow occurs.

An attacker can therefore invite the victim to open a malicious TIFF image with tiff2pdf, in order to create a denial of service or to execute code.
