GLSA-200908-10 : Dillo: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code
High Nessus Plugin ID 40635
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200908-10 (Dillo: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
Tilei Wang reported an integer overflow in the Png_datainfo_callback() function, possibly leading to a heap-based buffer overflow.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open an HTML document containing a specially crafted, large PNG image, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Dillo users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=www-client/dillo-2.1.1'
