Posted by LinuxSecurity.com Team   
Mandrake These problems could allow attackers to construct images that could cause crashes or, potentially, the execution of arbitrary code when said images are loaded by a viewer that uses imlib.

                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           imlib
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2002:028
Date:                   April 25th, 2002
Affected versions:      7.1, 7.2, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, Corporate Server 1.0.1
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 Previous versions of imlib, prior to 1.9.13, would fall back to the
 NetPBM library which is not suitable for loading untrusted images due
 to various problem in it's code.  The new imlib also fixes some
 problems with arguments passed to malloc().  These problems could allow
 attackers to construct images that could cause crashes or, potentially,
 the execution of arbitrary code when said images are loaded by a viewer
 that uses imlib.

 Thanks to Alan Cox and Al Viro for discovering the problems.
