Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2014-131

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2014-131
Posted Jul 9, 2014
Authored by Mandriva | Site mandriva.com

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2014-131 - A flaw was found in the way file parsed property information from Composite Document Files (CDF) files, where the mconvert() function did not correctly compute the truncated pascal string size. Multiple flaws were found in the way file parsed property information from Composite Document Files files, due to insufficient boundary checks on buffers. Note: these issues were announced as part of the upstream PHP 5.4.30 release, as PHP bundles file's libmagic library. Their announcement also references an issue in CDF file parsing, which was previously fixed in the file package in MGASA-2014-0252, but was not announced at that time.

Package : file
Date : July 9, 2014
Affected: Business Server 1.0

Problem Description:

Updated file packages fix security vulnerabilities:

A flaw was found in the way file parsed property information from
Composite Document Files (CDF) files, where the mconvert() function did
not correctly compute the truncated pascal string size (CVE-2014-3478).

Multiple flaws were found in the way file parsed property information
from Composite Document Files (CDF) files, due to insufficient boundary
checks on buffers (CVE-2014-3479, CVE-2014-3480, CVE-2014-3487).

Note: these issues were announced as part of the upstream PHP 5.4.30
release, as PHP bundles file's libmagic library. Their announcement
also references an issue in CDF file parsing, CVE-2014-0207, which
was previously fixed in the file package in MGASA-2014-0252, but was
not announced at that time.
