SuSE 10 Security Update : imlib2-loaders (ZYPP Patch Number 2261)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 29464


The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.


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

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

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

- 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-2006-4807)

- 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. (CVE-2006-4806)

Additionally loading of TIFF images on 64bit systems now works.

This obsoletes a previous update, which had broken JPEG loading.


Apply ZYPP patch number 2261.
