Detail

Updated file package fixes security vulnerability:

It was discovered that file before 5.17 contains a flaw in the handling of indirect magic rules in the libmagic library, which leads to an infinite recursion when trying to determine the file type of certain files (CVE-2014-1943).

Additionally, other well-crafted files might result in long computation times (while using 100% CPU) and overlong results.

A flaw was found in the way the file utility determined the type of Portable Executable (PE) format files, the executable format used on Windows. A malicious PE file could cause the file utility to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code (CVE-2014-2270).

A memory leak in file has also been fixed.

The affected packages have been upgraded to the 5.12 version and patched to correct these flaws.
