Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : gd (MDKSA-2004:132)

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Integer overflows were reported in the GD Graphics Library (libgd)
2.0.28, and possibly other versions. These overflows allow remote
attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary
code via PNG image files with large image rows values that lead to a
heap-based buffer overflow in the gdImageCreateFromPngCtx() function.

The updated packages have been patched to prevent these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
