Fedora Core 2 : imlib-1.9.13-19 (2004-301)
High Nessus Plugin ID 14704
SynopsisThe remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.
DescriptionSeveral heap overflow vulnerabilities have been found in the imlib BMP image handler. An attacker could create a carefully crafted BMP file in such a way that it would cause an application linked with imlib to execute arbitrary code when the file was opened by a victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0817 to this issue.
Users of imlib should update to this updated package which contains backported patches and is not vulnerable to these issues.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
