GLSA-201412-46 : LittleCMS: Denial of Service
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 80267
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201412-46 (LittleCMS: Denial of Service)
Multiple stack-based buffer overflows and a profile parser error have been found in LittleCMS.
A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system to open a specially crafted file containing a malicious ICC profile, possibly resulting in a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll LittleCMS users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/lcms-2.6-r1' Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying these packages.
NOTE: Gentoo has discontinued support for the LittleCMS 1.9 branch.
