Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : libwmf (MDKSA-2006:114-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

Multiple buffer overflows in the gd graphics library (libgd) 2.0.21
and earlier may allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via
malformed image files that trigger the overflows due to improper calls
to the gdMalloc function. (CVE-2004-0941)

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.
Libwmf contains an embedded copy of the GD library code.

also been included in this update.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
