Description Josh Bressers 2009-02-26 09:00:08 EST
Chris Evans discovered a flaw in how LittleCms checks certain upper-bounds sizes. This flaw could potentially lead to arbitrary code execution in applications that use the system LittleCms library, or embed the source into their application.

Acknowledgements:

Red Hat would like to thank Chris Evans from the Google Security Team for
reporting these issues.

Comment 22 Jan Lieskovsky 2009-03-24 13:56:47 EDT
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2009-0733 to
this vulnerability:

Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in the ReadSetOfCurves function
in LittleCMS (aka lcms or liblcms) before 1.18beta2, as used in
Firefox 3.1beta, OpenJDK, and GIMP, allow context-dependent attackers
to execute arbitrary code via a crafted image file associated with a
large integer value for the (1) input or (2) output channel, related
to the ReadLUT_A2B and ReadLUT_B2A functions.
