Posted By LinuxSecurity Advisories
Stefan Cornelius discovered a vulnerability in the Radiance High Dynamic Range (HDR) image parser in Blender, a 3D modelling application. The weakness could enable a stack-based buffer overflow and the execution of arbitrary code if a maliciously-crafted HDR file is opened, or if a directory containing such a file is browsed via Blender's image-open dialog.

Package        : blender
Vulnerability  : buffer overrun
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-1102

Stefan Cornelius discovered a vulnerability in the Radiance High
Dynamic Range (HDR) image parser in Blender, a 3D modelling
application.  The weakness could enable a stack-based buffer overflow
and the execution of arbitrary code if a maliciously-crafted HDR file
is opened, or if a directory containing such a file is browsed via
Blender's image-open dialog.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.42a-7.1+etch1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.45-5.

We recommend that you upgrade your blender packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
