Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: libfpx: Denial of Service (GLSA 201605-03)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: May 30, 2016
Bug(s): #395367
ID: 201605-03

Synopsis

A double free vulnerability has been discovered in libfpx that
allows remote attackers to cause a Denial of Service.


Background

A library for manipulating FlashPIX images.

Affected Packages

Package: media-libs/libfpx
Vulnerable: < 1.3.1_p6
Unaffected: >= 1.3.1_p6
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

A double free vulnerability has been discovered in the Free_All_Memory
function in jpeg/dectile.c.


Impact

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted FPX
image using an application linked against libfpx, possibly resulting in a
Denial of Service condition.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All libfpx users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/libfpx-1.3.1_p6"
   
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying these packages.
