Description

Updated imlib packages that fix several integer and buffer overflows are now available. [Updated Dec 22, 2004] Added multilib packages to the Itanium, PPC, AMD64/Intel EM64T, and IBM eServer zSeries architectures for Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 3.

The imlib packages contain an image loading and rendering library. Pavel Kankovsky discovered several heap overflow flaws that were found in the imlib image handler. An attacker could create a carefully crafted image file in such a way that it could cause an application linked with imlib to execute arbitrary code when the file was opened by a victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-1025 to this issue. Additionally, Pavel discovered several integer overflow flaws that were found in the imlib image handler. An attacker could create a carefully crafted image file in such a way that it could cause an application linked with imlib to execute arbitrary code or crash when the file was opened by a victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-1026 to this issue. Users of imlib should update to these updated packages, which contain backported patches and are not vulnerable to this issue.
