GLSA-200612-20 : imlib2: Multiple vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 23957


The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.


The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200612-20 (imlib2: Multiple vulnerabilities)

M. Joonas Pihlaja discovered several buffer overflows in loader_argb.c, loader_png.c, loader_lbm.c, loader_jpeg.c, loader_tiff.c, loader_tga.c, loader_pnm.c and an out-of-bounds memory read access in loader_tga.c.
Impact :

An attacker can entice a user to process a specially crafted JPG, ARGB, PNG, LBM, PNM, TIFF, or TGA image with an 'imlib2*' binary or another application using the imlib2 libraries. Successful exploitation of the buffer overflows causes the execution of arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running the application.
Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.


All imlib2 users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/imlib2-1.3.0'
