Description

Multiple integer overflows in operations/external/ppm-load.c in GEGL (Generic Graphics Library) 0.2.0 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a large (1) width or (2) height value in a Portable Pixel Map (ppm) image, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow.

Solution(s)

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-gegl
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-gegl-devel

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
