LXer: Mandriva: 2014:116: file

Published at LXer:

A flaw was found in the way file's Composite Document Files (CDF) format parser handle CDF files with many summary info entries. The cdf_unpack_summary_info() function unnecessarily repeatedly read the info from the same offset. This led to many file_printf() calls in cdf_file_property_info(), which caused file to use an excessive amount of CPU time when parsing a specially-crafted CDF file (CVE-2014-0237).]
