Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : gd (MDKSA-2007:153)

Synopsis :

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

Description :

GD versions prior to 2.0.35 have a number of bugs which potentially
lead to denial of service and possibly other issues.

Integer overflow in gdImageCreateTrueColor function in the GD Graphics
Library (libgd) before 2.0.35 allows user-assisted remote attackers to
have unspecified remote attack vectors and impact. (CVE-2007-3472)

The gdImageCreateXbm function in the GD Graphics Library (libgd)
before 2.0.35 allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial
of service (crash) via unspecified vectors involving a gdImageCreate
failure. (CVE-2007-3473)

Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the GIF reader in the GD
Graphics Library (libgd) before 2.0.35 allow user-assisted remote
attackers to have unspecified attack vectors and impact.
(CVE-2007-3474)

The GD Graphics Library (libgd) before 2.0.35 allows user-assisted
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a GIF image
that has no global color map. (CVE-2007-3475)

Array index error in gd_gif_in.c in the GD Graphics Library (libgd)
before 2.0.35 allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial
of service (crash and heap corruption) via large color index values in
crafted image data, which results in a segmentation fault.
(CVE-2007-3476)

The (a) imagearc and (b) imagefilledarc functions in GD Graphics
Library (libgd) before 2.0.35 allows attackers to cause a denial of
service (CPU consumption) via a large (1) start or (2) end angle
degree value. (CVE-2007-3477)

Race condition in gdImageStringFTEx (gdft_draw_bitmap) in gdft.c in
the GD Graphics Library (libgd) before 2.0.35 allows user-assisted
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via unspecified
vectors, possibly involving truetype font (TTF) support.
(CVE-2007-3478)

The security issues related to GIF image handling (CVE-2007-3473,
CVE-2007-3474, CVE-2007-3475, CVE-2007-3476) do not affect Corporate
3.0, as the version of GD included in these versions does not include
GIF support.

Updated packages have been patched to prevent these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 4.3
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
