FreeBSD : giflib -- heap overflow (90c8385a-dc9f-11e5-8fa8-14dae9d210b8)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 89014


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


Hans Jerry Illikainen reports :

A heap overflow may occur in the giffix utility included in giflib-5.1.1 when processing records of the type `IMAGE_DESC_RECORD_TYPE' due to the allocated size of `LineBuffer' equaling the value of the logical screen width, `GifFileIn->SWidth', while subsequently having `GifFileIn->Image.Width' bytes of data written to it.


Update the affected package.
