CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE   : imlib
SUMMARY   : Potential vulnerabilities in imlib
DATE      : 2002-03-28 15:01:00
ID        : CLA-2002:470
RELEVANT
RELEASES  : 5.0, prg graficos, ecommerce, 5.1, 6.0, 7.0

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

DESCRIPTION
 Imlib is a library that allows X11 programs to use images of various
 file formats.
 
 Alan Cox discovered some situations where a heap corruption[1] may
 occur when processing some malformed image.
 Al Viro found that imlib was falling back to the NetPBM library[2]
 when processing some kind of images, but NetPBM is not suitable to
 process untrusted image input.
 
 An attacker could use a crafted image to exploit a program linked to
 imlib (like a mailer program or an image viewer) and cause a DoS or
 even remote code execution.
 
 This update to imlib 1.9.13 solves both problems.


SOLUTION
 All users of imlib should do the upgrade. Notice that the
 vulnerabilities can be exploited through programs linked to imlib
 (like the Electronic Eyes image viewer), so you should restart them
 in order to load the updated imlib.
