imlib2 load() function buffer overflow
|imlib2-pnm-xpm-bo (42732)||High Risk|
imlib2 is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the load() function when handling headers within PNM and XPM image files. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted PNM or XPM image file, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
Apply the fix, available from the CVS Repository. See References.
