Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:143: kdegraphics

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the kdegraphics package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:143 (kdegraphics).



Wouter Hanegraaff discovered that the TIFF library did not sufficiently
validate the 'YCbCr subsampling' value in TIFF image headers. Decoding a
malicious image with a zero value resulted in an arithmetic exception, which
can cause a program that uses the TIFF library to crash.

Kdegraphics < 3.3 uses an embedded libtiff source tree for kfax, and as such
has the same vulnerability.

The updated packages are patched to protect against this vulnerability.
