Debian Security Advisory DSA-3121-1                   security@debian.org

Package        : file
CVE ID         : CVE-2014-8116 CVE-2014-8117
Debian Bug     : 773148

Multiple security issues have been found in file, a tool/library to 
determine a file type. Processing a malformed file could result in
denial of service. Most of the changes are related to parsing ELF
files.

As part of the fixes, several limits on aspects of the detection were
added or tightened, sometimes resulting in messages like "recursion
limit exceeded" or "too many program header sections".

To mitigate such shortcomings, these limits are controllable by a new
- - -P, --parameter option in the file program.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
version 5.11-2+deb7u7.

For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie), these problems will be
fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 1:5.21+15-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your file packages.
