Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : xfig (MDVSA-2011:010)

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in xfig :

Stack-based buffer overflow in the read_1_3_textobject function in
f_readold.c in Xfig 3.2.5b and earlier, and in the read_textobject
function in read1_3.c in fig2dev in Transfig 3.2.5a and earlier,
allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a long string in
a malformed .fig file that uses the 1.3 file format. NOTE: some of
these details are obtained from third-party information
(CVE-2009-4227).

Stack consumption vulnerability in u_bound.c in Xfig 3.2.5b and
earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) via a long string in a malformed .fig file that
uses the 1.3 file format, possibly related to the readfp_fig function
in f_read.c (CVE-2009-4228).

Stack-based buffer overflow in Xfig 3.2.4 and 3.2.5 allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute
arbitrary code via a FIG image with a crafted color definition
(CVE-2010-4262).

Packages for 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance
Program. Please visit this link to learn more:
