Vulnerability Assessment Details

[GLSA-200604-10] zgv, xzgv: Heap overflow

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
zgv, xzgv: Heap overflow

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200604-10
(zgv, xzgv: Heap overflow)


Andrea Barisani of Gentoo Linux discovered xzgv and zgv allocate
insufficient memory when rendering images with more than 3 output
components, such as images using the YCCK or CMYK colour space. When
xzgv or zgv attempt to render the image, data from the image overruns a
heap allocated buffer.

Impact

A possible hacker may be able to construct a malicious image that
executes arbitrary code with the permissions of the xzgv or zgv user
when attempting to render the image.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-gfx/xzgv-0.8-r2"
All zgv users should also upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-gfx/zgv-5.8"
