Critical Nessus Plugin ID 25593


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


The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200706-08 (emul-linux-x86-java: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Chris Evans of the Google Security Team has discovered an integer overflow in the ICC parser, and another vulnerability in the BMP parser. An unspecified vulnerability involving an 'incorrect use of system classes' was reported by the Fujitsu security team.
Impact :

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted image, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Emul-linux-x86-java. They also could entice a user to open a specially crafted BMP image, resulting in a Denial of Service. Note that these vulnerabilities may also be triggered by a tool processing image files automatically.
Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.


All Emul-linux-x86-java users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-java-'
