Security Advisory

1) Integer overflow

Severity: High

CVSSv3: 8.8 [CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H/E:P/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-5100

CWE-ID: CWE-190 - Integer Overflow or Wraparound

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the target system.

The vulnerability exists due to integer overflow in the BMP header parsing functionality. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted BMP image file, trigger integer overflow and execute arbitrary code on the target system.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may result in complete compromise of vulnerable system.

Note: This vulnerability affects LEADTOOLS version 20.0.2019.3.15.

Mitigation

Vendor recommends to update to version 20.0.2019.3.20

Q & A

Can this vulnerability be exploited remotely?

Yes. This vulnerability can be exploited by a remote non-authenticated attacker via the Internet.

Is there known malware, which exploits this vulnerability?

No. We are not aware of malware exploiting this vulnerability. However, proof of concept for this vulnerability is available.

2) Out-of-bounds write

Severity: High

CVSSv3: 8.8 [CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H/E:P/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-5084

CWE-ID: CWE-787 - Out-of-bounds Write

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to compromise vulnerable system.

The vulnerability exists in the TIF-parsing functionality due to a boundary error when processing untrusted input. A remote attacker can create a specially crafted TIF image, trigger out-of-bounds write and execute arbitrary code on the target system.

Note: This vulnerability affects LEADTOOLS version 20.0.2019.3.15.

Mitigation

Vendor recommends to update to version 20.0.2019.3.20.

3) Integer underflow

Severity: High

CVSSv3: 8.8 [CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H/E:P/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-5099

CWE-ID: CWE-191 - Integer Underflow (Wrap or Wraparound)

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the target system.

The vulnerability exists due to integer underflow in the CMP-parsing functionality. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted CMP image file to the affected application, trigger integer underflow and execute arbitrary code on the target system.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may result in complete compromise of vulnerable system.

Note: This vulnerability affects LEADTOOLS version 20.0.2019.3.15.

Mitigation

Vendor recommends to update to version 20.0.2019.3.20.

4) Heap-based buffer overflow

Severity: High

CVSSv3: 8.8 [CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H/E:P/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-5125

CWE-ID: CWE-122 - Heap-based Buffer Overflow

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the target system.

The vulnerability exists due to a boundary error in the JPEG2000 parsing functionality. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted J2K image file, trigger heap-based buffer overflow and execute arbitrary code on the target system.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may result in complete compromise of vulnerable system.

Note: This vulnerability affects LEADTOOLS version 20.0.2019.3.15.

Mitigation

Vendor recommends to update to version 20.0.2019.3.20.
