Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: LittleCMS: Denial of Service (GLSA 201412-46)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: December 26, 2014
Bug(s): #479874, #507788
ID: 201412-46


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.

Affected Packages

Package: media-libs/lcms
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:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/lcms-2.6-r1"
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying these packages.
NOTE: Gentoo has discontinued support for the LittleCMS 1.9 branch.
