New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 3.6
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionBuffer overflow in the LWZReadByte() function in gd_gif_in.c in GD prior to 2.0.34 allows remote attackers to have an unknown impact via a GIF file with input_code_size greater than MAX_LWZ_BITS, which triggers an overflow when initializing the table array.
This was originally fixed in PHP's embedded GD with MDKSA-2006:162;
patches had not been applied to the system libgd at that time.
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
