LTS Report for September
In September I spent 10 hours on the following tasks:
* Research security issues in various packages, such as Asterisk and
* Reproduce CVE-2017-14103 in graphicsmagic on Wheezy, Stretch, and
Unstable. Note that stretch and Unstable are marked as fixed, but I am
not entirely convinced this is correct, as the exploit fails in
exactly the same way.
* Noticed that I could not initially reproduce CVE-2017-14103 on wheezy
because it entered a busy read loop trying to read one byte at a time
past EOF for a large number of bytes.
* Patched graphicsmagick to fix both above security issues, and uploaded
a version and made available for testing.
I have not yet had a chance to look at CVE-2017-14504, will do so next
