GLSA-201401-01 : Libgdiplus: Arbitrary code execution
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 71801
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201401-01 (Libgdiplus: Arbitrary code execution)
An integer overflow flaw has been discovered in Libgdiplus.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted TIFF/JPEG/BMP file, potentially resulting in arbitrary code execution.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Libgdiplus users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=dev-dotnet/libgdiplus-2.6.7-r1' Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are available since September 12, 2010. It is likely that your system is already no longer affected by this issue.
