Fedora Core 2 : gd-2.0.21-5.20.1 (2004-411)

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

Several buffer overflows were reported in various memory allocation
calls. An attacker could create a carefully crafted image file in such
a way that it could cause ImageMagick to execute arbitrary code when
processing the image. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0990 to these issues.

Whilst researching the fixes to these overflows, additional buffer
overflows were discovered in calls to gdMalloc. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the
name CVE-2004-0941 to these issues.

Users of gd should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported security patch, and are not vulnerable to these issues.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
