CVE-2008-3521

Status Candidate

Overview

Race condition in the jas_stream_tmpfile function in libjasper/base/jas_stream.c in JasPer 1.900.1 allows local users to cause a denial of service (program exit) by creating the appropriate tmp.XXXXXXXXXX temporary file, which causes Jasper to exit. NOTE: this was originally reported as a symlink issue, but this was incorrect. NOTE: some vendors dispute the severity of this issue, but it satisfies CVE's requirements for inclusion.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2009-142
Posted Dec 4, 2009
Authored by Mandriva | Site mandriva.com

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2009-142 - Multiple security vulnerabilities has been identified and fixed in jasper. The jpc_qcx_getcompparms function in jpc/jpc_cs.c for the JasPer JPEG-2000 library (libjasper) before 1.900 allows remote user-assisted attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly corrupt the heap via malformed image files, as originally demonstrated using imagemagick convert. Multiple integer overflows in JasPer 1.900.1 might allow context-dependent attackers to have an unknown impact via a crafted image file, related to integer multiplication for memory allocation. The jas_stream_tmpfile function in libjasper/base/jas_stream.c in JasPer 1.900.1 allows local users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on a tmp.XXXXXXXXXX temporary file. Buffer overflow in the jas_stream_printf function in libjasper/base/jas_stream.c in JasPer 1.900.1 might allow context-dependent attackers to have an unknown impact via vectors related to the mif_hdr_put function and use of vsprintf. The updated packages have been patched to prevent this. Packages for 2008.0 are being provided due to extended support for Corporate products.

Ubuntu Security Notice 742-1
Posted Mar 20, 2009
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-742-1 - It was discovered that JasPer did not correctly handle memory allocation when parsing certain malformed JPEG2000 images. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted image with an application that uses libjasper, an attacker could cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. It was discovered that JasPer created temporary files in an insecure way. Local users could exploit a race condition and cause a denial of service in libjasper applications. It was discovered that JasPer did not correctly handle certain formatting operations. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted image with an application that uses libjasper, an attacker could cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.
