ID CVE-2009-0583
Summary Multiple integer overflows in icc.c in the International Color Consortium (ICC) Format library (aka icclib), as used in Ghostscript 8.64 and earlier and Argyll Color Management System (CMS) 1.0.3 and earlier, allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code by using a device file for a translation request that operates on a crafted image file and targets a certain "native color space," related to an ICC profile in a (1) PostScript or (2) PDF file with embedded images.

CWE CWE-119
CAPEC
  • Buffer Overflow via Environment Variables
    This attack pattern involves causing a buffer overflow through manipulation of environment variables. Once the attacker finds that they can modify an environment variable, they may try to overflow associated buffers. This attack leverages implicit trust often placed in environment variables.
  • Overflow Buffers
    Buffer Overflow attacks target improper or missing bounds checking on buffer operations, typically triggered by input injected by an attacker. As a consequence, an attacker is able to write past the boundaries of allocated buffer regions in memory, causing a program crash or potentially redirection of execution as per the attackers' choice.
  • Client-side Injection-induced Buffer Overflow
    This type of attack exploits a buffer overflow vulnerability in targeted client software through injection of malicious content from a custom-built hostile service.
  • Filter Failure through Buffer Overflow
    In this attack, the idea is to cause an active filter to fail by causing an oversized transaction. An attacker may try to feed overly long input strings to the program in an attempt to overwhelm the filter (by causing a buffer overflow) and hoping that the filter does not fail securely (i.e. the user input is let into the system unfiltered).
  • MIME Conversion
    An attacker exploits a weakness in the MIME conversion routine to cause a buffer overflow and gain control over the mail server machine. The MIME system is designed to allow various different information formats to be interpreted and sent via e-mail. Attack points exist when data are converted to MIME compatible format and back.
  • Overflow Binary Resource File
    An attack of this type exploits a buffer overflow vulnerability in the handling of binary resources. Binary resources may include music files like MP3, image files like JPEG files, and any other binary file. These attacks may pass unnoticed to the client machine through normal usage of files, such as a browser loading a seemingly innocent JPEG file. This can allow the attacker access to the execution stack and execute arbitrary code in the target process. This attack pattern is a variant of standard buffer overflow attacks using an unexpected vector (binary files) to wrap its attack and open up a new attack vector. The attacker is required to either directly serve the binary content to the victim, or place it in a locale like a MP3 sharing application, for the victim to download. The attacker then is notified upon the download or otherwise locates the vulnerability opened up by the buffer overflow.
  • Buffer Overflow via Symbolic Links
    This type of attack leverages the use of symbolic links to cause buffer overflows. An attacker can try to create or manipulate a symbolic link file such that its contents result in out of bounds data. When the target software processes the symbolic link file, it could potentially overflow internal buffers with insufficient bounds checking.
  • Overflow Variables and Tags
    This type of attack leverages the use of tags or variables from a formatted configuration data to cause buffer overflow. The attacker crafts a malicious HTML page or configuration file that includes oversized strings, thus causing an overflow.
  • Buffer Overflow via Parameter Expansion
    In this attack, the target software is given input that the attacker knows will be modified and expanded in size during processing. This attack relies on the target software failing to anticipate that the expanded data may exceed some internal limit, thereby creating a buffer overflow.
  • Buffer Overflow in an API Call
    This attack targets libraries or shared code modules which are vulnerable to buffer overflow attacks. An attacker who has access to an API may try to embed malicious code in the API function call and exploit a buffer overflow vulnerability in the function's implementation. All clients that make use of the code library thus become vulnerable by association. This has a very broad effect on security across a system, usually affecting more than one software process.
  • Buffer Overflow in Local Command-Line Utilities
    This attack targets command-line utilities available in a number of shells. An attacker can leverage a vulnerability found in a command-line utility to escalate privilege to root.

    description Multiple security vulnerabilities has been identified and fixed in ghostscript : A buffer underflow in Ghostscript's CCITTFax decoding filter allows remote attackers to cause denial of service and possibly to execute arbitrary by using a crafted PDF file (CVE-2007-6725). Buffer overflow in Ghostscript's BaseFont writer module allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly to execute arbitrary code via a crafted Postscript file (CVE-2008-6679). Multiple interger overflows in Ghostsript's International Color Consortium Format Library (icclib) allows attackers to cause denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow and application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code by using either a PostScript or PDF file with crafte embedded images (CVE-2009-0583, CVE-2009-0584). Multiple interger overflows in Ghostsript's International Color Consortium Format Library (icclib) allows attackers to cause denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow and application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code by using either a PostScript or PDF file with crafte embedded images. Note: this issue exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2009-0583 (CVE-2009-0792). Heap-based overflow in Ghostscript's JBIG2 decoding library allows attackers to cause denial of service and possibly to execute arbitrary code by using a crafted PDF file (CVE-2009-0196). 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 (CVE-2008-3520). 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 (CVE-2008-3522). Previousely the ghostscript packages were statically built against a bundled and private copy of the jasper library. This update makes ghostscript link against the shared system jasper library which makes it easier to address presumptive future security issues in the jasper library. Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0 customers This update provides fixes for that vulnerabilities.

    description Multiple integer overflows were found in the International Color Consortium Format Library (icclib). An attacker could use this flaw to potentially execute arbitrary code by requesting to translate a specially- crafted image file created on one device into another's device native color space via a device file. Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    description Updated ghostscript packages that fix multiple security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. Ghostscript is a set of software that provides a PostScript interpreter, a set of C procedures (the Ghostscript library, which implements the graphics capabilities in the PostScript language) and an interpreter for Portable Document Format (PDF) files. It was discovered that the Red Hat Security Advisory RHSA-2009:0345 did not address all possible integer overflow flaws in Ghostscript's International Color Consortium Format library (icclib). Using specially crafted ICC profiles, an attacker could create a malicious PostScript or PDF file with embedded images that could cause Ghostscript to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2009-0792) A buffer overflow flaw and multiple missing boundary checks were found in Ghostscript. An attacker could create a specially crafted PostScript or PDF file that could cause Ghostscript to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2008-6679, CVE-2007-6725, CVE-2009-0196) Red Hat would like to thank Alin Rad Pop of Secunia Research for responsibly reporting the CVE-2009-0196 flaw. Users of ghostscript are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues.
