    Posted ByJoe Shakespeare
    Pavel Kankovsky discovered that several overflows found in the libXpm library were also present in imlib, an imaging library for X and X11. An attacker could create a carefully crafted image file in such a way that it could cause an application linked with imlib to execute arbitrary code when the file was opened by a victim.

    Pavel Kankovsky discovered that several overflows found in the libXpm
    library were also present in imlib, an imaging library for X and X11.
    An attacker could create a carefully crafted image file in such a way
    that it could cause an application linked with imlib to execute
    arbitrary code when the file was opened by a victim.  The Common
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
    problems:
    
    CAN-2004-1025
    
        Multiple heap-based buffer overflows.
    
    CAN-2004-1026
    
        Multiple integer overflows.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.9.14-2woody2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.9.14-17.1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your imlib packages immediately.
