SuSE9 Security Update : netpbm (YOU Patch Number 11701)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 9 host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

This update fixes a buffer overflow in the RGBA-palette code. The bug
can be abused to trigger a denial-or-service attack by feeding
untrusted data to 'pnmtopng -alpha' (maybe via a remote service like a
CGI, mail user agent, etc.) The execution of arbitrary code is
theoretically possible but unlikely. Another possible buffer overflow
that can occur while handling a textline has been fixed as well.

This is a reissue of an earlier patch to fix version problems with the
previous release.
