Debian Security Advisory DSA-2029-1 security@debian.org

- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : imlib2
Vulnerability : several
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
Debian bug : 576469
CVE ID : CVE-2008-6079

It was discovered that imlib2, a library to load and process several image
formats, did not properly process various image file types.
Several heap and stack based buffer overflows - partly due to integer
overflows - in the ARGB, BMP, JPEG, LBM, PNM, TGA and XPM loaders can
lead to the execution of arbitrary code via crafted image files.


For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.0-1.2+lenny1.

For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.2-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.2-1.
