This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Updated gegl packages fix security vulnerability :

An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was
found in the way the gegl utility processed .ppm (Portable Pixel Map)
image files. An attacker could create a specially crafted .ppm file
that, when opened in gegl, would cause gegl to crash or, potentially,
execute arbitrary code (CVE-2012-4433).

Solution :

Update the affected gegl, lib64gegl-devel and / or lib64gegl0.2_0
packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 6.5
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : false
