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

Synopsis:          Updated gd packages fix security issues
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2004:638-01
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2004-638.html
Issue date:        2004-12-17
Updated on:        2004-12-17
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Keywords:          gd buffer overflow gdMalloc gdCalloc gdRealloc
CVE Names:         CAN-2004-0941 CAN-2004-0990
---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated gd packages that fix security issues with overflow in various
memory allocation calls 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 gd packages contain a graphics library used for the dynamic creation of
images such as PNG and JPEG.

Several buffer overflows were reported in various memory allocation calls.
An attacker could create a carefully crafted image file in such a way that
it could cause ImageMagick to execute arbitrary code when processing the
image. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CAN-2004-0990 to these issues.

While researching the fixes to these overflows, additional buffer overflows
were discovered in calls to gdMalloc.  The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0941 to
these issues.

Users of gd should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported security patch, and are not vulnerable to these issues.

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):

137246 - CAN-2004-0990 integer overflow in PNG handling.
138808 - CAN-2004-0941 additional overflows in gd
