Fixed In Version: OpenEXR 3.0.0-beta, OpeneXR 2.4.3
Doc Type: If docs needed, set a value
Doc Text:
There's a flaw in OpenEXR's deep tile sample size calculations. An attacker who is able to submit a crafted file to be processed by OpenEXR could trigger an integer overflow, subsequently leading to an out-of-bounds read. The greatest risk of this flaw is to application availability.

Created OpenEXR tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1939185]

Comment 3 Todd Cullum 2021-03-30 16:34:20 UTC
I *believe* this is the upstream patch: https://github.com/AcademySoftwareFoundation/openexr/commit/467be80b75642efbbe6bdace558079f68c16acb1

It is not quite clear from the oss-fuzz output (I don't have access to the "detailed report."

Flaw summary:

Integer overflow in DeepTiledInputFile::initialize() of src/lib/OpenEXR/ImfDeepTiledInputFile.cpp could lead to an out-of-bounds read in DeepTiledInputFile::readPixelSampleCounts() based on the file's tileDesc.xSize and tileDesc.ySize.

Comment 6 Cary Phillips 2021-04-23 01:48:39 UTC
This is fixed in OpenEXR v2.5.4, v2.5.5, and v3.0.1 and beyond.

Comment 7 Cary Phillips 2021-05-25 21:41:23 UTC
This is also fixed in OpenEXR v2.4.3
