An imlib update is available for Fedora Core 2

Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 2
Name : imlib
Version : 1.9.13
Release : 19
Summary : An image loading and rendering library for X11R6.
Description :
Imlib is a display depth independent image loading and rendering library. Imlib is designed to simplify and speed up the process of loading images and obtaining X Window System drawables. Imlib provides many simple manipulation routines which can be used for common operations.

Install imlib if you need an image loading and rendering library for X11R6, or if you are installing GNOME. You may also want to install the imlib-cfgeditor package, which will help you configure Imlib.

Update Information:

Several heap overflow vulnerabilities have been found in the imlib BMP image handler. An attacker could create a carefully crafted BMP file in such a way that it would 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-2004-0817 to this issue.

Users of imlib should update to this updated package which contains backported patches and is not vulnerable to these issues.
