Description Francisco Alonso 2014-04-28 07:40:13 UTC
Invalid pointer dereference flaws were found in the way file, utility for determining of file types processed header section for certain Composite Document Format (CDF) files. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted CDF file, 
which once inspected by the file utility of the victim would lead to file executable crash.

Comment 9 Tomas Hoger 2014-05-15 11:15:14 UTC
This CVE was assigned to an incorrect boundary check in the cdf_read_short_sector() function.  The issue was corrected as part of this upstream commit:

https://github.com/file/file/commit/6d209c1c489457397a5763bca4b28e43aac90391#diff-0

The boundary check was added as part of the CVE-2012-1571 fix (see bug 805197).  The CVE-2014-0207 is really an incomplete / insufficient CVE-2012-1571 fix CVE and hence does not affected file packages in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, and php53 packages in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and php packages in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, which did not get the incomplete fix applied.  Future updates addressing CVE-2012-1571 will use complete fix.
