Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200712-24
(AMD64 x86 emulation GTK+ library: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)

The Cairo versions used by the AMD64 x86 emulation GTK+ libraries were
vulnerable to integer overflow vulnerabilities (GLSA 200712-04).

Impact :

A remote attacker could entice a user to view or process a specially
crafted PNG image file in an application linked against Cairo, possibly
leading to the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running the application.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.

Solution :

All AMD64 x86 emulation GTK+ library users should upgrade to the latest
version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-gtklibs-20071214'

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
