Synopsis:          Moderate: gd security update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2006:0194-01
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2006-0194.html
Issue date:        2006-02-01

CVE Names:         CVE-2004-0941
- ---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated gd packages that fix several buffer overflow flaws are now available.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem description:

The gd package contains a graphics library used for the dynamic creation of
images such as PNG and JPEG.

Several buffer overflow flaws were found in the way gd allocates memory. 
An attacker could create a carefully crafted image that could execute
arbitrary code if opened by a victim using a program linked against the gd
library.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
assigned the name CVE-2004-0941 to these issues.

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

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

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