CVE-2015-8397: GDCM out-of-bounds read in JPEGLSCodec::DecodeExtent Jan 11 2016 08:16AM
Stelios Tsampas (stelios census-labs com)
Grassroots DICOM (GDCM) is a C++ library for processing DICOM medical
images.
It provides routines to view and manipulate a wide range of image formats
and can be accessed through many popular programming languages like Python,
C#, Java and PHP.

GDCM versions 2.6.0 and 2.6.1 (and possibly previous versions) are prone to
an out-of-bounds read vulnerability due to missing checks. The vulnerability
occurs during the decoding of JPEG-LS images when the dimensions of the
embedded JPEG-LS image (as specified in the JPEG headers) are smaller than
the ones of the selected region (set by gdcm::ImageRegionReader::SetRegion
and usually based on DICOM header values).

More information about this vulnerability can be found at
http://census-labs.com/news/2016/01/11/gdcm-out-bounds-read-jpeglscodec-
decodeextent/

The GDCM project has released version 2.6.2 that addresses this issue.
It is advised to upgrade all GDCM installations to the latest stable
release.
