Package : imlib2 Vulnerability : integer overflows Problem-Type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CAN-2004-1026
Pavel Kankovsky discovered that several overflows found in the libXpm library were also present in imlib and imlib2, imaging libraries for X11. An attacker could create a carefully crafted image file in such a way that it could cause an application linked with imlib or imlib2 to execute arbitrary code when the file was opened by a victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
Multiple heap-based buffer overflows. No such code is present in imlib2.
Multiple integer overflows in the imlib library.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.5-2woody2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your imlib2 packages.
