Status Candidate

Overview

The decompress function in compress42.c in (1) ncompress 4.2.4 and (2) liblzw allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash), and possibly execute arbitrary code, via crafted data that leads to a buffer underflow.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2012-129 - The decompress function in ncompress allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service, and possibly execute arbitrary code, via crafted data that leads to a buffer underflow. A missing DHCP option checking / sanitization flaw was reported for multiple DHCP clients. This flaw may allow DHCP server to trick DHCP clients to set e.g. system hostname to a specially crafted value containing shell special characters. Various scripts assume that hostname is trusted, which may lead to code execution when hostname is specially crafted. Additionally for Mandriva Enterprise Server 5 various problems in the ka-deploy and uClibc packages was discovered and fixed with this advisory. The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues. The wrong set of packages was sent out with the MDVSA-2012:129 advisory that lacked the fix for CVE-2006-1168. This advisory provides the correct packages.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-0810-04

Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-0810-04 - BusyBox provides a single binary that includes versions of a large number of system commands, including a shell. This can be very useful for recovering from certain types of system failures, particularly those involving broken shared libraries. A buffer underflow flaw was found in the way the uncompress utility of BusyBox expanded certain archive files compressed using Lempel-Ziv compression. If a user were tricked into expanding a specially-crafted archive file with uncompress, it could cause BusyBox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running BusyBox.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2011-167
Posted Nov 4, 2011

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2011-167 - A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in gimp. The LZW decompressor in the LWZReadByte function in giftoppm.c in the David Koblas GIF decoder in PBMPLUS, as used in the gif_read_lzw function in filter/image-gif.c in CUPS before 1.4.7, the LZWReadByte function in plug-ins/common/file-gif-load.c in GIMP 2.6.11 and earlier, the LZWReadByte function in img/gifread.c in XPCE in SWI-Prolog 5.10.4 and earlier, and other products, does not properly handle code words that are absent from the decompression table when encountered, which allows remote attackers to trigger an infinite loop or a heap-based buffer overflow, and possibly execute arbitrary code, via a crafted compressed stream. The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Debian Security Advisory 1149-1 - Tavis Ormandy from the Google Security Team discovered a missing boundary check in ncompress, the original Lempel-Ziv compress and uncompress programs, which allows a specially crafted datastream to underflow a buffer with attacker controlled data.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006-140 - Tavis Ormandy, of the Google Security Team, discovered that ncompress, when uncompressing data, performed no bounds checking, which could allow a specially crafted datastream to underflow a .bss buffer with attacker controlled data.
