Multiple Security Vulnerabilities in the Solaris GNOME PDF Rendering
Libraries May Lead to a Denial of Service (DoS) or Execution of
Arbitrary Code
  _________________________________________________________________

Category : Security
Release Phase : Workaround
Bug Id : 6904352
Product : Solaris 10 Operating System
OpenSolaris
Date of Workaround Release : 10-Dec-2009

Multiple Security Vulnerabilities in the Solaris GNOME PDF Rendering Libraries 
May Lead to a Denial of Service (DoS) or Execution of Arbitrary Code


1. Impact
Multiple integer overflow and improper memory allocation
vulnerabilities have been identified in the Solaris GNOME PDF
rendering libraries. These vulnerabilities may allow a local or remote
unprivileged user to cause the Solaris GNOME PDF viewers (evince(1)
for OpenSolaris and gpdf(1) for Solaris 10) which are linked to these
libraries to crash, resulting in a Denial of Service (DoS) or
arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running the
application.
These issues are also referenced in the following documents:

CVE-2009-3603 at
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=2009-3603
CVE-2009-3604 at
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=2009-3604
CVE-2009-3605 at
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=2009-3605
CVE-2009-3606 at
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=2009-3606
CVE-2009-3607 at
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=2009-3607
CVE-2009-3608 at
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=2009-3608
CVE-2009-3609 at
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=2009-3609


2. Contributing Factors
These issues can occur in the following releases:
SPARC Platform
  * Solaris 10
  * OpenSolaris based upon builds snv_01 through snv_129

x86 Platform
  * Solaris 10
  * OpenSolaris based upon builds snv_01 through snv_129

Notes:

1. Solaris 8 and 9 do not ship GNOME PDF Viewer and therefore are not
affected by these issues.

2. Solaris 10 is only affected by CVE-2009-3605, CVE-2009-3606  and
CVE-2009-3609 vulnerabilities.
OpenSolaris distributions may include additional bug fixes above and
beyond the build from which it was derived. To determine the base
build of OpenSolaris, the following command can be used:
$ uname -v
snv_86


3. Symptoms
If the described issues have been exploited to cause a Denial of
Service (DoS), the application which makes use of the GNOME PDF
rendering libraries will crash, potentially leaving a core file
depending on the system configuration. There are no predictable
symptoms that would indicate these issues have been exploited to
execute arbitrary code.

4. Workaround
Until the resolution patches are available, it may be possible to work
around the described issues by not opening untrusted PDF files with
the GNOME PDF Viewer.

5. Resolution
These issues are addressed in the following releases:
SPARC Platform
  * OpenSolaris based upon builds snv_130 or later

x86 Platform
  * OpenSolaris based upon builds snv_130 or later

A final resolution is pending completion for Solaris 10.
