Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : tetex (MDKSA-2006:113)

This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2013 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.
Tetex contains an embedded copy of the GD library code.
(CVE-2004-0990)

The LZW decoding in the gdImageCreateFromGifPtr function in the Thomas
Boutell graphics draw (GD) library (aka libgd) 2.0.33 allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) via malformed
GIF data that causes an infinite loop. Tetex contains an embedded copy
of the GD library code. (CVE-2006-2906)

Updated packages have been patched to address both issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
