ZDI-11-107: Libtiff ThunderCode Decoder THUNDER_2BITDELTAS Remote Code Execution Vulnerability http://www.zerodayinitiative.com/advisories/ZDI-11-107 March 21, 2011 -- CVE ID: CVE-2011-1167 -- CVSS: 9, (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:C) -- Affected Vendors: Libtiff -- Affected Products: Libtiff libtiff -- TippingPoint(TM) IPS Customer Protection: TippingPoint IPS customers have been protected against this vulnerability by Digital Vaccine protection filter ID 10729. For further product information on the TippingPoint IPS, visit: http://www.tippingpoint.com -- Vulnerability Details: This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of libtiff. User interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must visit a malicious page or open a malicious file. The specific flaw exists within the implementation of the ThunderDecode codec. While decoding a particular code within a row, the decoder will fail to accommodate for the total expanded size of the row. This can cause a heap-based buffer overflow which can lead to code execution under the context of the application utilizing the library. -- Vendor Response: Libtiff has issued an update to correct this vulnerability.
