Description

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.

Solution(s)

  • ubuntu-upgrade-liblcms1
  • ubuntu-upgrade-python-liblcms

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
