Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:098: libxpm4

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the libxpm4 package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:098 (libxpm4).


Chris Evans found several stack and integer overflows in the libXpm code of
X.Org/XFree86 (from which the libxpm code is derived):
Stack overflows (CVE-2004-0687):
Careless use of strcat() in both the XPMv1 and XPMv2/3 xpmParseColors code leads
to a stack based overflow (parse.c).
Stack overflow reading pixel values in ParseAndPutPixels (create.c) as well as
ParsePixels (parse.c).
Integer Overflows (CVE-2004-0688):
Integer overflow allocating colorTable in xpmParseColors (parse.c) - probably a
crashable but not exploitable offence.
The updated packages have patches from Chris Evans and Matthieu Herrb to address
these vulnerabilities.
