Description Jan Lieskovsky 2010-07-02 12:59:41 UTC
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2010-2598 to
the following vulnerability:

LibTIFF in Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 3 on x86_64 platforms, as
used in tiff2rgba, attempts to process image data even when the
required compression functionality is not configured, which allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a crafted TIFF
image, related to "downsampled OJPEG input."

Comment 1 Jan Lieskovsky 2010-07-02 13:02:20 UTC
This issue affects the versions of the libtiff package, as shipped
with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4, and 5.

--

This issue does NOT affect the current versions of the libtiff
and mingw32-libtiff packages, as shipped with Fedora releases of 12
and 13 (this flaw has been already addressed in those versions).

Comment 5 Tom Lane 2010-07-02 14:00:16 UTC
Actually the problem is not at all specific to 64-bit platforms, though possibly specific manifestations of it might be.

Comment 6 Tomas Hoger 2010-07-07 09:41:20 UTC
Tom, thank you for clarification.

Hence this needs to be correct to: This only affected libtiff in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.  libtiff versions in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and later are based on upstream version that stops reading image that does not have compression method configured.

Comment 7 errata-xmlrpc 2010-07-08 15:47:09 UTC
This issue has been addressed in following products:

  Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3
