Fedora 9 : argyllcms-1.0.3-3.fc9 (2009-3031)

high Nessus Plugin ID 36024


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Multiple integer overflows were found in the International Color Consortium Format Library (icclib). An attacker could use this flaw to potentially execute arbitrary code by requesting to translate a specially- crafted image file created on one device into another's device native color space via a device file.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected argyllcms package.
