Synopsis
========

zgv contains multiple buffer overflows that can potentially lead to the
execution of arbitrary code.

Background
==========

zgv is a console image viewer based on svgalib.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package        /  Vulnerable  /                        Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  media-gfx/zgv        < 5.8                                 >= 5.8

Description
===========

Multiple arithmetic overflows have been detected in the image
processing code of zgv.

Impact
======

An attacker could entice a user to open a specially-crafted image file,
potentially resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the rights of
the user running zgv.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All zgv users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-gfx/zgv-5.8"
