Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA618] DSA-618-1 imlib

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-618-1 imlib

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Pavel Kankovsky discovered that several overflows found in the libXpm
library were also present in imlib, an imaging library for X and X11.
A possible hacker could create a carefully crafted image file in such a way
that it could cause an application linked with imlib to execute
arbitrary code when the file was opened by a victim. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
problems:
Multiple heap-based buffer overflows.
Multiple integer overflows.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.9.14-2woody2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.9.14-17.1 of imlib and in version 1.9.14-16.1 of imlib+png2
which produces the imlib1 package.
We recommend that you upgrade your imlib packages immediately.
