Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : gd (MDVSA-2008:038)

low Nessus Plugin ID 37016
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.

Synopsis

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

Description

Buffer 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.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
