Debian Security Advisory DSA-1745-2                              Steffen Joeris
March 25, 2009          
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package        : lcms
Vulnerability  : several vulnerabilities
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids        : CVE-2009-0581 CVE-2009-0723 CVE-2009-0733

This update fixes a possible regression introduced in DSA-1745-1 and
also enhances the security patch. For reference the original advisory
text is below.

Several security issues have been discovered in lcms, a color management
library. The Common Vulnerabilities andi Exposures project identifies
the following problems:


Chris Evans discovered that lcms is affected by a memory leak, which
could result in a denial of service via specially crafted image files.


Chris Evans discovered that lcms is prone to several integer overflows
via specially crafted image files, which could lead to the execution of
arbitrary code.


Chris Evans discovered the lack of upper-gounds check on sizes leading
to a buffer overflow, which could be used to execute arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.17.dfsg-1+lenny2.

For the oldstable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed
in version 1.15-1.1+etch3.

For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution
(sid), these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your lcms packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
