Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA628] DSA-628-1 imlib2

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-628-1 imlib2

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Pavel Kankovsky discovered that several overflows found in the libXpm
library were also present in imlib and imlib2, imaging libraries for
X11. A possible hacker could create a carefully crafted image file in such
a way that it could cause an application linked with imlib or imlib2
to execute arbitrary code when the file was opened by a victim. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
Multiple heap-based buffer overflows. No such code is present in
Multiple integer overflows in the imlib library.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0.5-2woody2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your imlib2 packages.
