This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

The LWZReadByte() and IMG_LoadLBM_RW() functions in SDL_image contain
a boundary error that could be triggered to cause a static buffer
overflow and a heap-based buffer overflow. If a user using an
application linked against the SDL_image library were to open a
carefully crafted GIF or IFF ILBM file, the application could crash or
possibly allow for the execution of arbitrary code.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
