Fedora Core 4 : libungif-4.1.3-3.fc4.2 (2005-1046)

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

The libungif package contains a shared library of functions for
loading and saving GIF format image files. The libungif library can
load any GIF file, but it will save GIFs only in uncompressed format;
it will not use the patented LZW compression used to save 'normal'
compressed GIF files.

A bug was found in the way libungif handles colormaps. An attacker
could create a GIF file in such a way that could cause out-of-bounds
writes and register corruptions. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project assigned the name CVE-2005-2974 to this issue.

All users of libungif should upgrade to the updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to resolve this issue.

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.
