Security Advisory Description

The do_uncompress function in g10/compress.c in GnuPG 1.x before 1.4.17 and 2.x
before 2.0.24 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service
(infinite loop) via malformed compressed packets, as demonstrated by an a3 01
5b ff byte sequence. (CVE-2014-4617)

Impact

ARX

This vulnerability is exposed when using the Auto Diagnostics feature.

BIG-IP

GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) is not used in traffic processing. GnuPG is used only
in administrative functions on the BIG-IP system, such as encryption of user
configuration set (UCS) and single configuration files (SCF), and verification
of ISOs and ASM signatures, which are not affected by this vulnerability. An
authenticated (root) user with advanced shell access could upload a
specially crafted file and execute gpg manually to trigger this vulnerability.

F5 iWorkflow, BIG-IQ, and Enterprise Manager

An authenticated user with advanced shell access could be able to exploit this
vulnerability by executing gpg manually.

Security Advisory Status

F5 Product Development has assigned ID 609691 (BIG-IP), ID 610471 (BIG-IQ and
F5 iWorkflow), ID 610474 (Enterprise Manager), ID 512014 (ARX), and
INSTALLER-2690 (Traffix SDC) to this vulnerability.

Security Advisory Recommended Actions

If you are running a version listed in the Versions known to be vulnerable
column, you can eliminate this vulnerability by upgrading to a version listed
in the Versions known to be not vulnerable column. If the table lists only an
older version than what you are currently running, or does not list a
non-vulnerable version, then no upgrade candidate currently exists.

To determine the necessary upgrade path for your BIG-IQ system, you should
understand the BIG-IQ product offering name changes. For more information,
refer to K21232150: Considerations for upgrading BIG-IQ or F5 iWorkflow systems
