Description

Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in Imlib 2 (aka imlib2) 1.4.0 allow user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via (1) a PNM image with a crafted header, related to the load function in src/modules/loaders/loader_pnm.c; or (2) a crafted XPM image, related to the load function in src/modules/loader_xpm.c.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-imlib2
  • suse-upgrade-imlib2-devel
  • suse-upgrade-imlib2-filters
  • suse-upgrade-imlib2-loaders
  • suse-upgrade-suse-release

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.
