For general information regarding FreeBSD Security Advisories,
including descriptions of the fields above, security branches, and the
following sections, please visit <URL:http://security.FreeBSD.org/>.

I. Background

The file(1) utility attempts to classify file system objects based on
filesystem, magic number and language tests.

The libmagic(3) library provides most of the functionality of file(1)
and may be used by other applications.

II. Problem Description

A specifically crafted Composite Document File (CDF) file can trigger an
out-of-bounds read or an invalid pointer dereference. [CVE-2012-1571]

A flaw in regular expression in the awk script detector makes use of
multiple wildcards with unlimited repetitions. [CVE-2013-7345]

A malicious input file could trigger infinite recursion in libmagic(3).
[CVE-2014-1943]

A specifically crafted Portable Executable (PE) can trigger out-of-bounds
read. [CVE-2014-2270]

III. Impact

An attacker who can cause file(1) or any other applications using the
libmagic(3) library to be run on a maliciously constructed input can
the application to crash or consume excessive CPU resources, resulting
in a denial-of-service.

IV. Workaround

No workaround is available, but systems where file(1) and other
libmagic(3)-using applications are never run on untrusted input are not
vulnerable.

V. Solution

Perform one of the following:

1) Upgrade your vulnerable system to a supported FreeBSD stable or
release / security branch (releng) dated after the correction date.

2) To update your vulnerable system via a source code patch:

The following patches have been verified to apply to the applicable
FreeBSD release branches.

a) Download the relevant patch from the location below, and verify the
detached PGP signature using your PGP utility.

[FreeBSD 9.1, 9.2, 9.3, 10.0]
# fetch http://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-14:16/file.patch
# fetch http://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-14:16/file.patch.asc
# gpg --verify file.patch.asc

[FreeBSD 8.4]
# fetch http://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-14:16/file-8.4.patch
# fetch http://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-14:16/file-8.4.patch.asc
# gpg --verify file.patch.asc

b) Apply the patch. Execute the following commands as root:

# cd /usr/src
# patch < /path/to/patch

c) Recompile the operating system using buildworld and installworld as
described in <URL:http://www.FreeBSD.org/handbook/makeworld.html>.

Restart all deamons using the library, or reboot the system.

3) To update your vulnerable system via a binary patch:

Systems running a RELEASE version of FreeBSD on the i386 or amd64
platforms can be updated via the freebsd-update(8) utility:

# freebsd-update fetch
# freebsd-update install

VI. Correction details

The following list contains the correction revision numbers for each
affected branch.
