GLSA-200712-24 : AMD64 x86 emulation GTK+ library: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 29821
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200712-24 (AMD64 x86 emulation GTK+ library: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
The Cairo versions used by the AMD64 x86 emulation GTK+ libraries were vulnerable to integer overflow vulnerabilities (GLSA 200712-04).
A remote attacker could entice a user to view or process a specially crafted PNG image file in an application linked against Cairo, possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll AMD64 x86 emulation GTK+ library users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-gtklibs-20071214'
