Description

Stack-based buffer overflow in libpixman, as used in Pale Moon before 15.4 and possibly other products, has unspecified impact and context-dependent attack vectors. NOTE: this issue might be resultant from an integer overflow in the fast_composite_scaled_bilinear function in pixman-inlines.h, which triggers an infinite loop.

Solution(s)

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-pixman
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-pixman-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.
