Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:217: netpbm

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the netpbm package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:217 (netpbm).



Greg Roelofs discovered and fixed several buffer overflows in pnmtopng which is
also included in netpbm, a collection of graphic conversion utilities, that can
lead to the execution of arbitrary code via a specially crafted PNM file.
Multiple buffer overflows in pnmtopng in netpbm 10.0 and earlier permit
attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted PNM file. (CVE-2005-3632) An
off-by-one buffer overflow in pnmtopng, when using the -alpha command line
option, permits attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly
execute arbitrary code via a crafted PNM file with exactly 256 colors.
(CVE-2005-3662) The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
