Posted on: 01/06/2005 05:25 PM

Updated wxGTK2 packages are available for Mandrakelinux 10.0 and 10.1
_______________________________________________________________________

Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: wxGTK2
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2005:002
Date: January 6th, 2005

Affected versions: 10.0, 10.1
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the libtiff package; wxGTK2 uses a libtiff code tree, so it may have the same vulnerabilities:

iDefense reported the possibility of remote exploitation of an integer overflow in libtiff that may allow for the execution of arbitrary code.

The overflow occurs in the parsing of TIFF files set with the STRIPOFFSETS flag.

iDefense also reported a heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability within the LibTIFF package could allow attackers to execute arbitrary code. (CAN-2004-1308)

The vulnerability specifically exists due to insufficient validation of user-supplied data when calculating the size of a directory entry.

The updated packages are patched to protect against these
vulnerabilities.
