openSUSE 10 Security Update : imlib2 (imlib2-5571)

High Nessus Plugin ID 34193


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


This update fixes two security problems in imlib2.

Specially crafted xpm files could trigger a stack based buffer overflow in imlib2 which could potentially be exploited to execute arbitrary code (CVE-2008-2426).

A crash in PNM handling due to a NULL pointer dereference was fixed.


Update the affected imlib2 packages.
