Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: libxpm4
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2004:098
Date: September 15th, 2004

Affected versions: 10.0, 9.2, Corporate Server 2.1
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Chris Evans found several stack and integer overflows in the libXpm code of X.Org/XFree86 (from which the libxpm code is derived):

Stack overflows (CAN-2004-0687):

Careless use of strcat() in both the XPMv1 and XPMv2/3 xpmParseColors code leads to a stack based overflow (parse.c).

Stack overflow reading pixel values in ParseAndPutPixels (create.c) as well as ParsePixels (parse.c).

Integer Overflows (CAN-2004-0688):

Integer overflow allocating colorTable in xpmParseColors (parse.c) - probably a crashable but not exploitable offence.

The updated packages have patches from Chris Evans and Matthieu Herrb to address these vulnerabilities.
