                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           WindowMaker
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2002:085
Date:                   December 2nd, 2002

Affected versions:      7.2, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, 9.0
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 Al Viro discovered a vulnerability in the WindowMaker window manager.
 A function used to load images, for example when configuring a new
 background image or previewing themes, contains a buffer overflow.
 The function calculates the amount of memory necessary to load the
 image by doing some multiplication but does not check the results of
 this multiplication, which may not fit into the destination variable,
 resulting in a buffer overflow when the image is loaded.
