Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA190] DSA-190-1 wmaker

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-190-1 wmaker

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Al Viro found a problem in the image handling code use in Window Maker,
a popular NEXTSTEP like window manager. When creating an image it would
allocate a buffer by multiplying the image width and height, but did not
check for an overflow. This makes it possible to overflow the buffer.
This could be exploited by using specially crafted image files (for
example when previewing themes).
This problem has been fixed in version 0.80.0-4.1 for the current stable
distribution (woody). Packages for the mipsel architecture are not yet
available.
