Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2004-651: imlib

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the imlib packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated imlib packages that fix several integer and buffer overflows are
now available.

The imlib packages contain an image loading and rendering library.

Pavel Kankovsky discovered several heap overflow flaws that were found 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 victim. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CVE-2004-1025 to this issue.

Additionally, Pavel discovered several integer overflow flaws that were
found 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 or crash when the file was opened by a
victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
has assigned the name CVE-2004-1026 to this issue.

Users of imlib should update to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches and are not vulnerable to this issue.
