Debian DLA-1341-1 : sdl-image1.2 security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 108902


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


Lilith of Cisco Talos discovered several buffer overflow vulnerabilities in the SDL Image library which can be leveraged by attackers to execute arbitrary code via specially crafted image files.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.2.12-2+deb7u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your sdl-image1.2 packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Upgrade the affected packages.
