The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


Various security problems have been fixed in the imlib2 image loaders :

CVE-2006-4809: A stack-based buffer overflow in loader_pnm.c could be used by attackers to execute code by supplying a handcrafted PNM image.

CVE-2006-4808: A heap buffer overflow in loader_tga.c could potentially be used by attackers to execute code by supplying a handcrafted TGA image.

CVE-2006-4807: A out of bounds memory read in loader_tga.c could be used to crash the imlib2 using application with a handcrafted TGA image.

CVE-2006-4806: Various integer overflows in width*height calculations could lead to heap overflows which could potentially be used to execute code. Affected here are the ARGB, PNG, LBM, JPEG and TIFF loaders.

Additionaly loading of TIFF images on 64bit systems is now possible.

This update obsoletes the previous one, which had problems with JPEG loading.
