Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : perl-Tk (MDVSA-2008:077)

low Nessus Plugin ID 36248
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


A vulnerability in perl-Tk was found where specially crafted GIF images could crash perl-Tk (an identical issue to that found in php-gd, gd, and SDL_image).

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.


Update the affected perl-Tk, perl-Tk-devel and / or perl-Tk-doc packages.
