                        SCO Security Advisory

Subject:                UnixWare 7.1.4 : LibTIFF < 3.72 malformed data code exec
Advisory number:        SCOSA-2005.34
Issue date:             2005 September 20
Cross reference:        sr894564 fz532775 erg712889 CAN-2005-1544
______________________________________________________________________________


1. Problem Description

        Tavis Ormandy has reported a vulnerability in libTIFF, which
        potentially can be exploited by malicious people to compromise
        a vulnerable system. 
        
        The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error and can 
        be exploited to cause a buffer overflow via a specially crafted 
        TIFF image containing a malformed BitsPerSample tag. 
        
        Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code, 
        if a malicious TIFF image is opened in an application linked 
        against the vulnerable library. 
        
        The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) 
        has assigned the following name CAN-2005-1544 to this issue.
