Vulnerability Assessment Details

[GLSA-200502-07] OpenMotif: Multiple vulnerabilities in libXpm

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
OpenMotif: Multiple vulnerabilities in libXpm

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200502-07
(OpenMotif: Multiple vulnerabilities in libXpm)


Multiple vulnerabilities, such as buffer overflows, out of bounds
memory access or directory traversals, have been discovered in libXpm
that is shipped as a part of the X Window System (see GLSA 200409-34
and 200411-28). OpenMotif, an application that includes this library,
suffers from the same issues.

Impact

A carefully-crafted XPM file could crash applications making use of the
OpenMotif toolkit, potentially permiting the execution of arbitrary code
with the rights of the user running the application.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Solution:
All OpenMotif users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose x11-libs/openmotif
Note: You should run 'revdep-rebuild' to ensure that all applications
linked to OpenMotif are properly rebuilt.
