Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in gif2png, the worst of which
might allow execution of arbitrary code.

Background
==========

gif2png converts images from GIF format to PNG format.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 media-gfx/gif2png < 2.5.8 >= 2.5.8

Description
===========

Two vulnerabilities have been found in gif2png:

* A boundary error in gif2png.c could cause a buffer overflow
(CVE-2010-4694).
* The patch for CVE-2009-5018 causes gif2png to truncate GIF pathnames
(CVE-2010-4695).

Impact
======

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted GIF
file, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code, a Denial of
Service condition, or the creation of PNG files in unintended
directories.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All gif2png users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-gfx/gif2png-2.5.8"
