Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : libwmf (MDKSA-2007:123)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 25517
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

A flaw in libgd2 was found by Xavier Roche where it would not correctly validate PNG callback results. If an application linked against libgd2 was tricked into processing a specially crafted PNG file, it could cause a denial of service scenario via CPU resource consumption.

Libwmf uses an embedded copy of the gd source and may also be affected by this issue.

The updated packages have been patched to prevent this issue.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
