Summary ======= There is a file handling DoS in GIMP (the GNU Image Manipulation Program) for the 'fit' file format affecting all versions (Windows and Linux) up to and including 2.8.0. A file in the fit format with a malformed 'XTENSION' header will cause a crash in the GIMP program. CVE number: CVE-2012-3236 Vendor Homepage: http://www.gimp.org/ Date reported to vendor: 25/05/2012 Found by Joseph Sheridan: href="http://www.reactionpenetrationtesting.co.uk/joseph-sheridan.html This advisory is posted at: http://www.reactionpenetrationtesting.co.uk/FIT-file-handling-DoS.html PoC file is available here: http://www.reactionpenetrationtesting.co.uk/vuln.fit Affected Products ================= Vulnerable Products +------------------ The following products are known to be affected by this vulnerability: * GIMP <= 2.8.0 (Windows or Linux builds) Products Not Vulnerable +-------------------------------- * GIMP 2.8.1 Details ======= There is a file handling DoS in GIMP (the GNU Image Manipulation Program) for the 'fit' file format affecting all versions (Windows and Linux) up to 2.8.0. A file in the fit format with a malformed 'XTENSION' header will cause a crash in the GIMP program. The flaw is triggered by opening a crafted 'fit' file or allowing the file explorer dialog to preview the file. A file in the fit format starting as follows will trigger the crash: XTENSIONaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa...aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaHEADER2... The vulnerable code is in the fits-io.c lines where the program attempts to copy from a null pointer: { fdat = fits_decode_card (fits_search_card (hdr, "XTENSION"), typ_fstring); strcpy (hdulist->xtension, fdat->fstring); } This code can be patched by changing it to the following (as GIMP 2.8.1): fdat = fits_decode_card (fits_search_card (hdr, "XTENSION"), typ_fstring); if(fdat != NULL) { strcpy (hdulist->xtension, fdat->fstring); } else { strcpy (errmsg, "No valid XTENSION header found."); goto err_return; } Impact ====== Successful exploitation of the vulnerability may result in an application crash and denial of service. Solution =========== The GIMP team have provided an update for this issue (release 2.8.1). Workarounds =========== The fits-io.c file can be patched as above.
