Title: LittleCMS: Denial of Service (GLSA 201412-46)
Date: December 26, 2014
Bug(s): #479874, #507788
Multiple buffer overflow flaws and a parser error in LittleCMS
could cause Denial of Service.
LittleCMS, or short lcms, is a color management system for working with
ICC profiles. It is used by many applications including GIMP and Firefox.
Vulnerable: < 2.6-r1
Unaffected: >= 2.6-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple stack-based buffer overflows and a profile parser error have
been found in LittleCMS.
A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system to open a
specially crafted file containing a malicious ICC profile, possibly
resulting in a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All LittleCMS users should upgrade to the latest version:
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/lcms-2.6-r1"
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying these packages.
NOTE: Gentoo has discontinued support for the LittleCMS 1.9 branch.
