      Date: January 11, 2005
      Bugs: #77002

Synopsis
=======
Multiple overflows have been found in the imlib2 library image decoding
routines, potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code.

Background
=========
imlib2 is an advanced replacement for image manipulation libraries such
as libXpm. It is utilized by numerous programs, including gkrellm and
several window managers, to display images.

Affected packages
================
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package            /  Vulnerable  /                    Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  media-libs/imlib2       < 1.2.0                          >= 1.2.0

Description
==========
Pavel Kankovsky discovered that several buffer overflows found in the
libXpm library (see GLSA 200409-34) also apply to imlib (see GLSA
200412-03) and imlib2. He also fixed a number of other potential
security vulnerabilities.

Impact
=====
A remote attacker could entice a user to view a carefully-crafted image
file, which would potentially lead to the execution of arbitrary code
with the rights of the user viewing the image. This affects any program
that utilizes of the imlib2 library.

Workaround
=========
There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=========
All imlib2 users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/imlib2-1.2.0"
