GLSA-200504-22 : KDE kimgio: PCX handling buffer overflow
High Nessus Plugin ID 18125
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200504-22 (KDE kimgio: PCX handling buffer overflow)
kimgio fails to properly validate input when handling PCX files.
By enticing a user to load a specially crafted PCX image in a KDE application, an attacker could execute arbitrary code.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll kdelibs users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose kde-base/kdelibs
