CVE-2009-3379 libvorbis: security fixes mentioned in MFSA 2009-63
Last modified: 2012-06-20 10:20:05 EDT
Quoting Mozilla Foundation Security Advisory 2009-63:
Lucas Adamski, Matthew Gregan, David Keeler, and Dan Kaminsky reported
crashes in libvorbis.
Advisory provides following bug list:
with only 500254 being public at the moment.
reported by Lucas Adamski
This issue is already known as CVE-2009-2663 (bug #516259). It was first fixed in Firefox 3.5.2 / 18.104.22.168 via:
(part of the "Browser crashes - Firefox 3.5"). Not sure why Mozilla upstream is mentioning this as security fix again, the bug seems to have been re-tested as the backported patch added in 22.214.171.124 was dropped during the rebase to libvorbis 1.2.3 in 3.5.4 / 126.96.36.199.
libvorbis packages in Red Hat Enterprise Linux have this fix included already:
This is a report of the possible integer overflow leading to bogus allocation of quantlist in vorbis_staticbook_unpack() in (vorbis_)cookbook.c. This seems to be a dupe of the older CVE-2008-1423 (bug #440709), which is also fixed in libvorbis packages in Red Hat Enterprise Linux for a while:
Looks like this mozilla hg commit has some relevant test cases:
Related vorbis SVN commit should be r16218:
Searching mozilla hg for 507167 yields this commit:
That "update to latest vorbis SVN" change seems to include two vorbis SVN commits:
r16552 seems to be changing / enhancing previous r14598:
which is a fix for CVE-2008-1420 (bug #440706). r16552 seems to make certain ogg files playable again, which were treated as invalid with original patch.
Hence r16597 should be relevant for mozilla 507167.

Advisory is now updated, 500254 was removed with following explanation:
The original version of this advisory incorrectly included bug 500254 as
part of CVE-2009-3370. That bug was actually fixed in Firefox 3.5.2 as
Going through the mozilla bugs, this is my list of vorbis SVN commits that should be needed:
One of the test cases triggers NULL deref crash in _vorbis_unpack_comment() because of an integer overflow in the check. That was fixed as part of the larger hardening commit:
Another similar fix:
And finally this commit which should prevent some unspecified overflows, which may also be an ABI breaker:
Anyone see anything else we should consider?
