Vulnerability Assessment Details

USN55-1 : imlib2 vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
imlib2 vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

These remote packages are missing security patches :
- libimlib2
- libimlib2-dev


Description :

Recently, Pavel Kankovsky discovered several buffer overflows in imlib
which were fixed in USN-53-1. It was found that imlib2 was vulnerable
to similar issues.

If a possible hacker tricked a user into loading a malicious XPM or BMP
image, he could exploit this to execute arbitrary code in the context
of the user opening the image.

These vulnerabilities might also lead to privilege escalation if a
privileged server process is using this library
for example, a PHP
script on the web server which does automatic image processing might
use the php-imlib package, in which case a remote attacker could
possibly execute arbitrary code with the web server's rights.

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- libimlib2-1.1.0-12ubuntu2.1 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- libimlib2-dev-1.1.0-12ubuntu2.1 (Ubuntu 4.10)
