Fedora Extras : imlib2-1.2.1-2 (2006-004)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 62278


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


M. Joonas Pihlaja discovered that imlib2 did not sufficiently verify the validity of ARGB, JPG, LBM, PNG, PNM, TGA, and TIFF images. If a user were tricked into viewing or processing a specially crafted image with an application that uses imlib2, the flaws could be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.

Fedora Extras versions earlier then the versions mentioned above are vulnerable to this problem, upgrade to fix this vulnerability.

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 imlib2 package.
