Description Jan Lieskovsky 2013-08-05 10:41:50 UTC
Three (two in ColorSpace conversion calculator, one in TIFF compare utility) stack-based buffer overflow flaws were found in the way icctrans / tiffdiff tools of LittleCMS, the color management system, used to process certain ICC color profile / TIFF image format files. Remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted ICC color profile / TIFF image format files that, when opened in color space conversion calculator (icctrans) or TIFF compare utility (tiffdiff) of LittleCMS would lead to that utility crash.
