Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:007 (imlib).



Pavel Kankovsky discovered several heap overflow flaw in the imlib image
handler. 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 user (CVE-2004-1025).

As well, Pavel also discovered several integer overflows in imlib. These could
permit a possible hacker, creating a carefully crafted image file, to cause an
application linked with imlib to execute arbitrary code or crash
