CVE-2009-2624

Status Candidate

Overview

The huft_build function in inflate.c in gzip before 1.3.13 creates a hufts (aka huffman) table that is too small, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash or infinite loop) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted archive. NOTE: this issue is caused by a CVE-2006-4334 regression.

Ubuntu Security Notice 889-1 - It was discovered that gzip incorrectly handled certain malformed compressed files. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted gzip file, an attacker could cause gzip to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. Aki Helin discovered that gzip incorrectly handled certain malformed files compressed with the Lempel

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2010-020
Posted Jan 21, 2010

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2010-020 - A missing input sanitation flaw was found in the way gzip used to decompress data blocks for dynamic Huffman codes. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted gzip compressed data archive, which once opened by a local, unsuspecting user would lead to denial of service (gzip crash) or, potentially, to arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running gzip. An integer underflow leading to array index error was found in the way gzip used to decompress files / archives, compressed with the Lempel-Ziv-Welch (LZW) compression algorithm. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted LZW compressed gzip archive, which once decompressed by a local, unsuspecting user would lead to gzip crash, or, potentially to arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running gzip. Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0 customers. The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
