CVE-2009-3050

Status Candidate

Overview

Buffer overflow in the set_page_size function in util.cxx in HTMLDOC 1.8.27 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via a long MEDIA SIZE comment. NOTE: it was later reported that there were additional vectors in htmllib.cxx and ps-pdf.cxx using an AFM font file with a long glyph name, but these vectors do not cross privilege boundaries.

Gentoo Linux Security Advisory GLSA 200909-12 - Multiple insecure calls to the sscanf() function in HTMLDOC might result in the execution of arbitrary code. ANTHRAX666 reported an insecure call to the sscanf() function in the set_page_size() function in htmldoc/util.cxx. Nico Golde of the Debian Security Team found two more insecure calls in the write_type1() function in htmldoc/ps-pdf.cxx and the htmlLoadFontWidths() function in htmldoc/htmllib.cxx. Versions less than 1.8.27-r1 are affected.
