VuXML IDDescription
815dbcf9-a2d6-11e3-8088-002590860428file -- denial of service

The Fine Free file project reports:

file before 5.17 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite recursion, CPU consumption, and crash) via a crafted indirect offset value in the magic of a file.

CVE-2014-2270
http://bugs.gw.com/view.php?id=31
8e01ab5b-0949-11dc-8163-000e0c2e438aFreeBSD -- heap overflow in file(1)

Problem Description:

When writing data into a buffer in the file_printf function, the length of the unused portion of the buffer is not correctly tracked, resulting in a buffer overflow when processing certain files.

Impact:

An attacker who can cause file(1) to be run on a maliciously constructed input can cause file(1) to crash. It may be possible for such an attacker to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running file(1).

The above also applies to any other applications using the libmagic(3) library.

Workaround:

No workaround is available, but systems where file(1) and other libmagic(3)-using applications are never run on untrusted input are not vulnerable.
