Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : libwmf (MDKSA-2007:036)
High Nessus Plugin ID 24649
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionBuffer overflow in the gdImageStringFTEx function in gdft.c in the GD Graphics Library 2.0.33 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted string with a JIS encoded font.
Libwmf uses an embedded copy of the gd source and may also be affected by this issue.
Packages have been patched to correct this issue.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
