ID CVE-2008-1679
Summary Multiple integer overflows in imageop.c in Python before 2.5.3 allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via crafted images that trigger heap-based buffer overflows. NOTE: this issue is due to an incomplete fix for CVE-2007-4965.

    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200807-01 (Python: Multiple integer overflows) Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in Python: David Remahl reported multiple integer overflows in the file imageop.c, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2008-1679). This issue is due to an incomplete fix for CVE-2007-4965. Justin Ferguson discovered that an integer signedness error in the zlib extension module might trigger insufficient memory allocation and a buffer overflow via a negative signed integer (CVE-2008-1721). Justin Ferguson discovered that insufficient input validation in the PyString_FromStringAndSize() function might lead to a buffer overflow (CVE-2008-1887). Impact : A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to cause a Denial of Service or possibly the remote execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Python. Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time.

This issue is also tracked as CVE-2008-1679 due to an initially incomplete patch. - CVE-2008-1721 Justin Ferguson discovered that a buffer overflow in the zlib module may lead to the execution of arbitrary code. - CVE-2008-1887 Justin Ferguson discovered that insufficient input validation in PyString_FromStringAndSize() may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

    description Multiple integer overflows in the imageop module in Python prior to 2.5.3 allowed context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via crafted images that trigger heap-based buffer overflows (CVE-2008-1679). This was due to an incomplete fix for CVE-2007-4965. David Remahl of Apple Product Security reported several integer overflows in a number of core modules (CVE-2008-2315). He also reported an integer overflow in the hashlib module on Python 2.5 that lead to unreliable cryptographic digest results (CVE-2008-2316). Justin Ferguson reported multiple buffer overflows in unicode string processing that affected 32bit systems (CVE-2008-3142). Multiple integer overflows were reported by the Google Security Team that had been fixed in Python 2.5.2 (CVE-2008-3143). Justin Ferguson reported a number of integer overflows and underflows in the PyOS_vsnprintf() function, as well as an off-by-one error when passing zero-length strings, that led to memory corruption (CVE-2008-3144). The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues. As well, Python packages on Mandriva Linux 2007.1 and 2008.0 have been updated to version 2.5.2. Due to slight packaging changes on Mandriva Linux 2007.1, a new package is available (tkinter-apps) that contains binary files (such as /usr/bin/idle) that were previously in the tkinter package.

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2009:1177 : Updated python packages that fix multiple security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming language. When the assert() system call was disabled, an input sanitization flaw was revealed in the Python string object implementation that led to a buffer overflow. The missing check for negative size values meant the Python memory allocator could allocate less memory than expected. This could result in arbitrary code execution with the Python interpreter's privileges. (CVE-2008-1887) Multiple buffer and integer overflow flaws were found in the Python Unicode string processing and in the Python Unicode and string object implementations. An attacker could use these flaws to cause a denial of service (Python application crash). (CVE-2008-3142, CVE-2008-5031) Multiple integer overflow flaws were found in the Python imageop module. If a Python application used the imageop module to process untrusted images, it could cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the Python interpreter's privileges. (CVE-2008-1679, CVE-2008-4864) Multiple integer underflow and overflow flaws were found in the Python snprintf() wrapper implementation. An attacker could use these flaws to cause a denial of service (memory corruption). (CVE-2008-3144) Multiple integer overflow flaws were found in various Python modules. An attacker could use these flaws to cause a denial of service (Python application crash). (CVE-2008-2315, CVE-2008-3143) An integer signedness error, leading to a buffer overflow, was found in the Python zlib extension module. If a Python application requested the negative byte count be flushed for a decompression stream, it could cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the Python interpreter's privileges. (CVE-2008-1721) Red Hat would like to thank David Remahl of the Apple Product Security team for responsibly reporting the CVE-2008-1679 and CVE-2008-2315 issues.

An attacker could use these flaws to cause a denial of service (memory corruption). (CVE-2008-3144) Multiple integer overflow flaws were found in various Python modules. An attacker could use these flaws to cause a denial of service (Python application crash). (CVE-2008-2315, CVE-2008-3143) An integer signedness error, leading to a buffer overflow, was found in the Python zlib extension module. If a Python application requested the negative byte count be flushed for a decompression stream, it could cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the Python interpreter's privileges. (CVE-2008-1721) Would like to thank David Remahl of the Apple Product Security team for responsibly reporting the CVE-2008-1679 and CVE-2008-2315 issues.
