Vulnerability Summary for CVE-2012-3401

Original release date: 08/13/2012
Last revised: 05/29/2013
Source: US-CERT/NIST

Overview

The t2p_read_tiff_init function in tiff2pdf (tools/tiff2pdf.c) in LibTIFF 4.0.2 and earlier does not properly initialize the T2P context struct pointer in certain error conditions, which allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted TIFF image that triggers a heap-based buffer overflow.

Impact

CVSS Severity (version 2.0):
CVSS v2 Base Score: 6.8 (MEDIUM) (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P) (legend)
Impact Subscore: 6.4

CVSS Version 2 Metrics:
Access Vector: Network exploitable; Victim must voluntarily interact with attack mechanism
Access Complexity: Medium
Authentication: Not required to exploit
Impact Type: Allows unauthorized disclosure of information; Allows unauthorized modification; Allows disruption of service
