RedHat Linux Updated imlib packages that fix several integer and buffer overflows are now available.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Updated imlib packages fix security vulnerabilities
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2004:651-01
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2004-651.html
Issue date:        2004-12-10
Updated on:        2004-12-10
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
CVE Names:         CAN-2004-1025 CAN-2004-1026
---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated imlib packages that fix several integer and buffer overflows are
now available.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (Advanced Server) version 2.1 - i386, ia64
Red Hat Linux Advanced Workstation 2.1 - ia64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 2.1 - i386
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 2.1 - i386
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Desktop version 3 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem description:

The imlib packages contain an image loading and rendering library.

Pavel Kankovsky discovered several heap overflow flaws that were found in
the imlib image handler. 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 (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CAN-2004-1025 to this issue.

Additionally, Pavel discovered several integer overflow flaws that were
found in the imlib image handler. 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 or crash when the file was opened by a
victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
has assigned the name CAN-2004-1026 to this issue.

Users of imlib should update to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches and are not vulnerable to this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
Network to download and update your packages.  To launch the Red Hat
Update Agent, use the following command:

    up2date

For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the
following Web page for the System Administration or Customization
guide specific to your system:

    http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/ for more info):

138516 - CAN-2004-1025 Multiple imlib issues. (CAN-2004-1026)
