SuSE 10 Security Update : imlib2-loaders (ZYPP Patch Number 2261)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

Various security problems have been fixed in the imlib2 image
loaders :

- A stack-based buffer overflow in loader_pnm.c could be
used by attackers to execute code by supplying a
handcrafted PNM image. (CVE-2006-4809)

- A heap buffer overflow in loader_tga.c could potentially
be used by attackers to execute code by supplying a
handcrafted TGA image. (CVE-2006-4808)

- A out of bounds memory read in loader_tga.c could be
used to crash the imlib2 using application with a
handcrafted TGA image. (CVE-2006-4807)

- Various integer overflows in width*height calculations
could lead to heap overflows which could potentially be
used to execute code. Affected here are the ARGB, PNG,
LBM, JPEG and TIFF loaders. (CVE-2006-4806)

Additionally loading of TIFF images on 64bit systems now works.

This obsoletes a previous update, which had broken JPEG loading.
