MGASA-2013-0119 Date: April 18th, 2013 Affected releases: 2 Media: Core Description: Updated libarchive packages fix security vulnerability: Fabian Yamaguchi reported a read buffer overflow flaw in libarchive on 64-bit systems where sizeof(size_t) is equal to 8. In the archive_write_zip_data() function in libarchive/ archive_write_set_format_zip.c, the "s" parameter is of type size_t (64 bit, unsigned) and is cast to a 64 bit signed integer. If "s" is larger than MAX_INT, it will not be set to "zip->remaining_data_bytes" even though it is larger than "zip->remaining_data_bytes", which leads to a buffer overflow when calling deflate(). This can lead to a segfault in an application that uses libarchive to create ZIP archives (CVE-2013-0211). Updated Packages: i586: bsdcpio-3.0.3-1.1.mga2.i586.rpm bsdtar-3.0.3-1.1.mga2.i586.rpm libarchive12-3.0.3-1.1.mga2.i586.rpm libarchive-devel-3.0.3-1.1.mga2.i586.rpm libarchive-debug-3.0.3-1.1.mga2.i586.rpm x86_64: bsdcpio-3.0.3-1.1.mga2.x86_64.rpm bsdtar-3.0.3-1.1.mga2.x86_64.rpm lib64archive12-3.0.3-1.1.mga2.x86_64.rpm lib64archive-devel-3.0.3-1.1.mga2.x86_64.rpm libarchive-debug-3.0.3-1.1.mga2.x86_64.rpm SRPMS: libarchive-3.0.3-1.1.mga2.src.rpm References:
